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.

Bogota (Colombia) -  Colombia defeated Bolivia 5-0 in front of 42,000 fans gathered in the Metropolitano stadium here, during the South American qualifying tournament for the 2014 World Football Cup.

The Colombian goals were scored by Macnelly Torres (20th minute), Carlos Valdes (48), Teofilo Gutierrez (62), Radamel Falcao (85) and Pablo Armero (92), reports Xinhua.

With this victory, Colombians led by Argentinean coach Jose Pekerman garnered 19 points in the Conmebol (South American Football Confederation) qualifiers, just behind Argentina.

During the game, a minute of silence was held for late Miguel Calero, former goalkeeper of Colombia, who died last December in Mexico.
