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.

Guangzhou (China) - India's Subhajit Saha and Divya Deshpande moved into the second stage of the Asia Cup Table Tennis meet here, causing upsets Saturday.

On a hectic day, the Indians played seven matches winning three and losing four. But what stood out on the day was the major upset by Subhajit Saha, ranked 259 in the world, who defeated world No.18 Jiang Tian Yi of Hong Kong 3-2. It was a well fought match where fortunes fluctuated from one extreme to another, but Saha held on gamely to outwit his opponent.

Similarly, unranked Divya toppled world No.123 Beh Lee Wei of Malaysia 3-1 to top the Challenger group. In fact, Divya's match proved to be one-sided with the Malaysian girl finding it difficult to handle Divya's crisp shots.

Both Saha and Divya will now play their matches for positions 9 to 16, slated for Sunday.
