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.

Beijing - China is conducting scientific testing and training exercises for its first aircraft carrier, the defence ministry said Thursday.

At a monthly press briefing, the Defence Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said it takes time for weapons and equipment to transit from scientific research to military use, Xinhua reported.

"Right now, China is working on scientific testing and training exercises for the aircraft carrier platform and other new weapons according to the schedule. The follow-up work will be carried out according to the progress of the activities," he said.

China's first aircraft carrier is expected to be commissioned between 2015 and 2020.
