Sep 23, 2022
Jashpur (Chhattisgarh), Sep 23 (ANI): Beating all the odds, Elizabeth Beck, a 28-year-old tribal girl from Chhattisgarh, has proved herself to be the best cyclist in the state. Hailing from the small town of Jashpur, Elizabeth has made her family proud with her selection for the National Games. The enthusiastic cyclist has reached this pedestal despite her family’s financial conditions and lack of equipment. Elizabeth has also grabbed several awards and has managed to make a name for herself in the sport of cycling. However, she is now seeking support from the government to move forward and hone her skills further. “Lack of equipment and money causes issues in training. Am I not allowed to play just because I am poor? Those participating in National Games are helped by their governments, but I have been going on my own,” the cyclist said.
