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 - Faced with a shortage of paediatric medical services, Beijing will soon witness construction of three new hospitals for children in the city.

The capital is bracing for a baby boom as about 200,000 babies will be born in 2012, the Year of the Dragon, which is believed by many people as the most auspicious year of the Chinese zodiac, reported the China Daily citing Beijing News.

According to Fang Laiying, director of Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, Peking University First Hospital will open a medical unit in southern Beijing while two other children's hospitals are also being planned in the eastern and western parts of the city.

There are about 100 hospitals in Beijing that have paediatric departments and nearly one-third are in level-three hospitals, a media report said.
