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 -  A giant human London Olympic logo covering 1,800 square metres has been created by 2,012 school children at Collingwood College in Camberley, Surrey.

The youngsters were joined by Olympic rower Debbie Flood, Britain's Olympic trampoline hopeful Amanda Parker, London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) deputy chairman Keith Mills and 1948 Surrey Olympic torch-bearer Austin Playfoot.

Helyn Clack, Surrey County Council's cabinet member for community services and the 2012 Games, said: "Thousands of children created a slice of Olympic history right here in Surrey. The children were beaming with excitement as they took to the sports field to create the giant London 2012 logo."

"It's going to be the most exciting year of sport this country has ever seen and events like this encourage more young people to get active. It may even inspire the next generation of Olympic and Paralympic athletes."

Surrey is hosting the men's and women's Olympic cycling road race events on the opening weekend of the Games (July 28-29) and the Olympic road cycling time trials on Aug 1.
