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.

Woodward, Obama wax works meet in Madame Tussauds after tiff

Washington - Both President Barack Obama and journalist Bob Woodward have wax replicas at Madame Tussauds in Washington, D.C.

And when Woodward and the White House found themselves at loggerheads last week, the wax museum decided to have a bit of fun with it.

According to Politico, the museum put the statute of Woodward, captured in wax in 1970s form with a reporter’s scowl on his face and a pen and pad in his hands, sitting on the president’s desk in the Oval Office while Obama looking away, smiling.

It’s perhaps most funny because, after last week’s tiff, it might be a very long time before Woodward gets any alone time with Obama again, the report added.
