Kalmadi was elected for another four-year term (2009-13) at the 18th General Body Meeting of the AAA, a day ahead of the 18th Asian Athletics Championships (November 10-14) to be held in the Chinese city. Kalmadi was first elected in 2000 in Jakarta and since then he has introduced many development projects in Asian athletics including Asian All Star meet, Asian Indoor Championship and Asian Grand Prix series, a release from the AAA said.

Maurice Nicholas of Singapore was also re-elected as Secretary/Treasurer of the Association. The AAA AGM was attended by International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) Lamine Diack and representatives of 45 countries. Diack appreciated the efforts made by Asia by hosting global events, particularly India's efforts of organising World Half Marathon in New Delhi in 2004 in a splendid manner, the release added.
