Indian-origin Neeru Samota has won a Gold medal in Street Modeling in addition to scoring a Bronze in Bikinis Angels at the I Compete Natural (ICN) World Championship event held on 20 Novemeber 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Neeru told The Australia Today:
“Grateful for this opportunity and will forever cherish these moments.”
ICN is a professional organisation that promotes best practices and innovation “to protect and serve the drug-free competitor, on a truly level playing field.”
“Our Motto has always been to “Serve and protect the Natural athlete”. We hope to do this while providing every competitor with a world-class and unique experience so you will remember and cherish your time with us. As part of our commitment to you.”
By following her passion for bodybuilding, Neeru is also trying to inspire other women from multicultural backgrounds to step forward and think about both physical and mental well-being.
“I do this as a mum and definitely understand how challenging it is to prioritise yourself. I do this to inspire other mums to look after their physical and mental health.”
Further, Neeru says that her future plan is to keep inspiring and keep working with other mums as a Fitness Coach.
“I now have my own studio gym at home where mums from diverse cultural backgrounds can bring their little ones with them and make the most of it. As a young mother, I understand it’s hard to leave little bubs and come out to exercise. Therefore, I am trying to make it a little easier for mums to do it.”
Earlier in May 2021, at the All Female Classic 2021, Neeru won Ms Runway (1st), Angels – Class 1 (1st), Ms Sports Model Rookie – Class 2 (3rd), Ms Sports Model Novice (4th), Ms Bikini Rookie – Class 1 (4th), Ms Bikini 30+ (4th), and Ms Bikini Momma (3rd). In October 2022, Neeru won two Silver medals in Runway Model and Bikini Angels event at the I ICN Victorian Muscle and Model Championship 2022.
