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.

Paris - Tennis player Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic was banned for six months after testing positive for doping, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) announced.

The ITF said the 26-year-old took a weight-loss substance, sibutramine, at the Luxembourg Open last year, Xinhua reports.

"Zahlavova Strycova asserted that the sibutramine, for which she did not hold a valid therapeutic use exemption, had got into her system through her ingestion of the supplement ACAI Berry Thin," ITF said Thursday.

"She is suspended from participation for six months, back-dated to commence from Oct 16, 2012 and so ending at midnight April 15, 2013."
