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.

Golden bust of Putin to be displayed

Moscow - A St. Petersburg jewelry company will display a 16.38-kg golden bust of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and later use the gold to make heart-shaped pendants, a media report said.

The bust will go on display soon and a month later the pendants will go on sale at company stores, so anyone can get a “piece of Putin,” the internet portal online812.ru quoted Anna Tolstykh, the spokeswoman of the 585 jeweler company, as saying Thursday.

Profits from the sale will be donated to fight against children's cancer, she said.

Putin was chosen for the campaign because in 2005 he initiated construction of the Cancer and Immunology Research Medical Centre in Moscow, Tolstykh said.

The spokeswoman said the company was not pursuing any political goals.

"We are only pursuing good intentions,” she said.

Russia will be electing its next president March 4. Vladimir Putin is running for presidency after two terms in the Kremlin in 2000-2008.
