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.

ESPN apologises for racist headline on Jeremy Lin

New York -  ESPN has issued an apology for using a racial slur in a headline for a story on Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin.
 
The sports network ran a headline “Chink in the Armor” for the Knicks’ loss Friday night, along with a picture of Jeremy Lin, who is an Asian-American,” the New York Post reported.

The headline was eventually removed, and ESPN was forced to apologize Saturday.

“Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am ET. The headline was removed at 3:05 am ET. We are conducting a complete review of our

cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake,” the network said.
