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.

Paredes to replace Sanchez in Chile's squad

Santiago -  Chile have recalled Esteban Paredes in the squad for Tuesday's World Cup football qualifier against Uruguay after Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez was ruled out due to suspension.

Sanchez picked up his second consecutive yellow card during the team's 0-1 loss to Peru in Lima, reports Xinhua.

Chilean coach Jorge Sampaoli Sunday was forced to call on Paredes, who plays forward for Mexican team Atlante.

"Paredes, who arrived this morning in (Chile's capital) Santiago, replaces Alexis Sanchez ... who was released for collecting yellow cards," the association said.

The game between Chile and Uruguay is considered key for both teams, after Chile lost to Peru in Lima and Uruguay tied Paraguay at home.

Chilean team member Marcelo Diaz praised the decision to bring Paredes in for the match.

"He is a born scorer who has been playing well for Mexico and he will beef up our offensive," said Diaz, who plays for Basel, Switzerland.

Chile will face Uruguay Tuesday at Santiago's National Stadium in the regional Concacaf qualifying rounds for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
