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.

Two missing climbers' bodies found in Italian Alps

Rome - Rescue teams have found the corpses of two climbers who went missing in the Alps in northwest Italy.

The climbers' bodies were found in a stream at the bottom of a precipice in the Gran Paradiso national park in Piedmont region.

Valter Corniati, 61, and Maria Teresa Pieri, 57, both from the town of Biella are believed to have slipped in deep snow and fallen after giving up an attempt to reach the summit of the 3,600-metre-high Gran Paradiso mountain.

Corniati and Pieri were experienced climbers and were well equipped for the expedition.

Rescue teams searched for the pair for two days after another climber raised the alarm when they failed to return to their shelter Sunday.
