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.

Geneva -  The FIFA Referees Committee has confirmed the appointment of 84 officials from 36 countries to officiate at the 2012 London Olympic football tournaments.

For the men's competition, 16 referees and 32 assistant referees have been selected from FIFA's six confederations, while for the women's tournament, 12 referees and 24 assistant referees will be on duty, Xinhua reported.

The London 2012 represents the first step on the road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil for the male referees.

FIFA's head of Women's Refereeing Sonia Denoncourt said Thursday that the bulk of the female referees who have been appointed for the 2012 Olympic Games are familiar faces from last summer's FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany and are at the top of their profession.
