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.

Cardiff (Wales) - Indian shuttler Trupti Murgunde went down in the quarterfinals of the Welsh International badminton tournament against Swiss Nicole Schaller here Saturday.

Third seed and World No.66 Nicole beat the 30-year-old Trupti 22-20, 21-7 in half hour at the Sport Wales National Centre to win their first ever encounter.

World No. 297 Trupti, who has had a topsy-turvy year, gave a good fight to the Swiss in the first game until the latter pulled away in the last two points.

The second game was dominated by Nicole, who won 21 of the 28 points played.

The 29-year-old Nicole will next face Bulgaria's top seed and World No.22 Petya Nedelcheva in the semifinals of the tier four event.
