I am not sure how he is even allowed to contest elections.
Scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi was on Monday ousted as president of the Asian Athletics Association, losing the re-election bid to Qatar's Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad on the opening day of the continental body's two-day Congress.
Kalmadi, who is out on bail after spending 10 months in jail for his alleged involvement in the Commonwealth Games scam, lost 18-20 while seeking re-election to a post he has held for 13 years.
Al Hamad is the Qatar Athletics Federation president and is also senior vice-president of the Asian body.
