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 - Russian warships participating in a Chinese-Russian joint naval drill raised China's national flag on Monday to mark the 63rd anniversary of the founding of the  People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy.

Rear Admiral Leonid Sukhanov said the flag-raising ceremony was held to mark the anniversary and to salute Chinese military officers and soldiers who have participated in the joint  exercise.

Flag-raising ceremonies were also held on anchored Chinese warships, as well as the Chinese navy fleet's camp.

The two sides will organize football games and other events to celebrate the occasion.

The PLA Navy was founded on April 23, 1949.

The joint drill, taking place in the Yellow Sea between April 22 and 27, involves a total of 18 vessels from the PLA Navy and four Russian warships from its Pacific fleet, as well as three supply  ships.

The exercise will focus on the defense of air routes and maritime traffic routes, search and rescue operations and anti-submarine tactics, as well as joint rescues of hijacked vessels.
