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.

Russia's Bystrov Out of US Test

Krasnodar (Russia) -Russia midfielder Vladimir Bystrov has failed to shake off a thigh injury and will miss the friendly soccer match with the United States, coach Fabio Capello said.

The Zenit St. Petersburg winger pulled up in training Tuesday after the injury he suffered in Sunday's 2-1 win over FC Volga proved too painful.

"He's returning to St. Petersburg soon," Capello said.

Bystrov is the fourth player to pull out of Capello's squad after ex-Everton midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, Zenit St. Petersburg midfielder Viktor Faizulin and Lokomotiv Moscow's Alexander Samedov also withdrew because of injury.

The Italian picked a youthful 26-man squad including Real Madrid's Denis Cheryshev and Anzhi striker Fyodor Smolov for the match in the southern city of Krasnodar.

US coach Jurgen Klinsmann recalled striker Jozy Altidore and also picked several youngsters in a 20-man squad.
