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.

Strong quake jolts MexicoMexico City -  A magnitude-6.3 earthquake jolted Mexico Monday, prompting evacuation of buildings in the capital.

The quake struck just before 1 p.m., and shook buildings in Mexico City for several seconds and sent residents fleeing to the streets.

Some residents told Xinhua that lights flickered and furniture shook in their homes.

The US Geological Survey measured the quake at 6.3 on the Richter scale. The epicenter, with a depth of 12.3 km, was located 27 km southeast of Ometepec in Guerrero state.

Mexico City mayor Marcelo Ebrard wrote on Twitter that an inspection via helicopter over the city showed "no major damages".

The subway was functioning normally, but there were evacuation of buildings and scenes of distress, the mayor said.

However, Mexico's National Seismological Service put the tremor at 6.0 magnitude.
