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.

Typhoon Nesat nears Philippines

Monday - Sep 26, 2011, 12:28pm (GMT+5.5)
[+] Text [-]

Schools in the Philippine capital have suspended classes and many local flights are cancelled as the country’s main island braces for heavy rains and winds brought by fast-moving Typhoon Nesat.

Forecasters say Nesat will make landfall in eastern Aurora province in the next 24 hours and cross Luzon Island north of Manila with winds of up to 215 kilometres per hour.

Heavy downpours and wind on Monday prompted the government to shut schools in Manila while airlines cancelled flights to central and eastern parts of the country.

The coast guard also grounded inter-island ferries, stranding hundreds of travellers.

The typhoon bore down on the Philippines exactly two years after nearly 500 people died in the worst flooding in decades in Manila.
