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.

Rooney defends Man U teammate Young over 'diving' barbs

[+] Text [-]

London - Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has leapt to his England and United teammate Ashley Young's defence over the diving barbs he has faced recently.

Young has been accused of cheating in the last fortnight after diving to win penalties against QPR and Aston Villa, but Rooney believes the former Villa star is being picked on only because he plays for a successful club like United.

"It has been exaggerated because Ashley is a United player," The Sun quoted Rooney, as saying.

"In any case, at times you are trying to get out of the way of being kicked and people think you have dived. The game is so quick these days it is difficult for the referee to get some decisions right," he added.
