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.

Moscow - The pilot of a Bell 407 light helicopter died after the aircraft crashed in Russia's Tatarstan region, officials said.

The helicopter wreckage, found near Yamash village, reportedly caught fire after the crash Friday. The pilot was the only person on board.

The helicopter was owned by the Ak Bars Aero company, the official flight operator of the Tatarstan regional government.

The crash was the second involving a Bell 407 in Russia in two months. A pilot died near Nizhny Novgorod last month after his helicopter crashed into the Volga river.

On Friday, another helicopter crashed in Karelia in northwest Russia. There were no fatalities but the two pilots and two passengers were injured.

The helicopter crashed on a frozen lake but did not break through the ice.
