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.

Gaza violence postpones Europa League match

Nyon (Switzerland) - Ongoing violence in the Gaza Strip means a Europa League tie between Israel’s Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and Spain’s Athletic Bilbao has been postponed, UEFA said Wednesday.

Clashes in Gaza are in their eighth day since Israeli forces began air strikes on the disputed territory in response to a surge in rocket firings.

The Group I match, scheduled to be held in Haifa, was moved “due to the tense security situation in the region”, UEFA said in a website statement.

“A decision concerning the rescheduling of the match will be made by the end of the week.”

On Wednesday, the city of Tel Aviv, near Hapoel Kiryat Shmona’s home city of Haifa, saw its first bomb attack since 2006 when a device exploded on a bus, reportedly injuring 10.
