Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

'Gladiators' Chelsea can eliminate Euro champs Barcelona: Ramires

London - Chelsea midfielder Ramires believes they can eliminate European champions Barcelona and advance to the final of the Champions League in Munich.

Chelsea would face Barcelona at Nou Camp in the second leg of the Champions League, with a slender but crucial lead of 1-0 over the Spanish giants.

"They don't intimidate me, Barca are not invincible. This is a game for gladiators. We can eliminate Barcelona," The Sun quoted Ramires, as saying.

"The pressure will be on Barcelona. They have to score and we can exploit that. We have showed it at Stamford Bridge. We have taken the first step - but our advantage is minimal," he added.

"They are favorites. This is the most important match of my career. Our dream is to play in the final in Munich and we are just 90 minutes from that," he said.
