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.

Giggs wants to add 'Europa League' medal to his trophy cabinet

London - Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has said he wants to add the Europa League medal to his trophy cabinet.

The Red Devils will make their Europa League debut against Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena on Thursday.

"I want a Europa League medal in my trophy cabinet," The Sun quoted Giggs, as saying.

There is a sense of anti-climax about the tournament around Old Trafford, as Sir Alex Ferguson's men had previously reached three Champions League finals in four years.

Giggs has urged his teammates to give Europe's second competition their best shot as they enter the last 32.

"It would be great to win, as it is something I've never won. It was disappointing to go out of the Champions League. But there is nothing we can do about it. So now let's go and win the  Europa League," he said.

Giggs has been a Champions League winner twice and also been a runner-up on two other occasions, so crashing out of the Champions League group stage was a bit of disappointment to  him.

"I've played so many games in the Champions League and been fortunate to play in four finals."
"But the simple fact is we weren't good enough this time. In the past, we have been good enough. So we're not going to moan about it. We just have to get on and try to win this competition,"  he said.
