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.

Rio confirms first Olympic test event

[+] Text [-]

Rio de Janeiro - The first official test event for the Rio 2016 Olympics will be a sailing regatta here in the Guanabara bay next August.


The competition will feature all Olympic sailing categories in weather conditions likely to reflect those of the Games to be held from Aug 5-21, reports Xinhua.

Agberto Guimaraes, sports director of the Rio Games organising committee, said the regatta would also provide a test for the revamped Gloria marina. An additional sailing competition will be staged in August 2015 along with planned trials for beach volleyball and cycling. Other Olympic test events will be held by the end of 2015, Guimaraes added.
