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.

London -  Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal has been chosen as one of the torchbearers for the London 2012 Olympics.

Blumenthal, 45, will be among 8,000 normal folk and celebrities carrying the flame across Britain.

He will run his leg of the relay in Slough, Berkshire — close to his Fat Duck restaurant in the village of Bray.

Blumenthal, famous for his snail porridge, spoke about his excitement on being one of the torchbearers.

“It’s such a massive honour,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“When the letter came through telling me, I just sat there staring at it.

“It’s amazing to think I’m going to be part of history,” he added.
