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.

Rio de Janeiro - Two second-half goals in the space of four minutes were enough to give Argentine giants Boca Juniors a 2-1 away victory over Ecuador's Barcelona in their Copa Libertadores Group 1 clash in Guayaquil.

Argentina international forward Juan Manuel Martinez gave the visitors the lead with a 59th minute strike from close range before Claudio Perez made it 2-0 by heading in a Nicolas Colazo's free-kick, reports Xinhua.

Barcelona reduced the deficit in injury time when Michael Arroyo converted from the penalty spot after Juan Carlos Paredes was brought down by Clemente Rodriguez.

The victory was Boca's first for the season in Latin America's premier club competition and moves them to within a point of group leaders Nacional of Uruguay.

In other matches, defending champions Corinthians defeated Millonarios 2-0, Deportes Iquique overcame Emelec 2-0 and Fluminense secured a 2-1 away victory over Huachipato.
