Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars 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.

Sir Richard Branson desperately seeking original Oz ‘Virgin’

Sydney - British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson is looking for a woman who starred as the model for the original Virgin logo in 1970.

Branson posted on his blog that ‘the model in the image appeared again and again as the logo evolved, starting off in our mail order record service when I was 20 years old. It was still present when we launched Virgin Records in 1973’.

He added that they have sadly lost track of her. We think she is now living in Australia, and would love to track her down, the Herald Sun reports

Branson and his team are keen to reunite with the logo model as Virgin Records celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

The label’s first release on May 25 in 1973 was the iconic Tubular Bells record by Mike Oldfield, it added.
