Western Bulldogs will benefit from knowing exactly what their AFL finals equation is on Sunday, when a frantic race to September ends in Perth.The Bulldogs can finish as high as fourth on the ladder if four results go their way in the last round of the season.On the flipside they could remain in seventh spot - regardless of how emphatic the victory they hope to enjoy over Fremantle might be.The Bulldogs are one of three sides on 15 wins, while ladder-leaders Sydney are one of four clubs to have already banked 16 victories.It means there are still plenty of unknowns and different scenarios that could play out as the jostling for a home final continues.The Bulldogs at least have one ace up their sleeve: their game starts at 4.40pm AEST on Sunday when the picture will be a lot clearer.Well have a fair idea of whether theres an opportunity (to climb up the ladder) or whether things cant change, depending on what happens in the other games, Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge said.So well need to process whatever happens before we play.If you start thinking too much about outcomes before you run out .. it can get to you and can be your achilles heel ultimately.All that matters is you focus on the actual process of doing your best to win.Beveridge was surprised to hear his side are still in the mix for a top-four berth.The Bulldogs will earn a double chance in finals if they win, while West Coast, Greater Western Sydney and Hawthorn all lose.They would also need to bridge a percentage gap of 2.3 to overtake the Hawks.Whether thats a reach or not, I dont know. Who knows, stranger things have happened, Beveridge said.Well travel to Western Australia with a team intent on finishing the home-and-away season on a positive.And making sure weve got some momentum coming into the week off.Who knows how the cards might fall.

NAIROBI, Kenya -- Despite having its most successful Olympics ever at the Rio de Janeiro Games, the Kenya teams preparation and management was chaotic, a government-ordered report revealed Tuesday.Among the many revelations in the 90-page report seen by The Associated Press: There was a brawl among members of the womens rugby team over how their prize money should be split, the race walking team wasnt given any track shoes, many of the athletes received uniforms that didnt fit, while some didnt get any and had to provide their own. And the medical officials tending to Kenyas top sports stars in case of serious injury had to travel between the spread-out Rio venues on shuttle buses meant for journalists and which only departed every 30 minutes -- and sometimes took over an hour to get to an arena.Also, members of the team began their final preparations for the worlds biggest sports event at a High Performance Training Center back home owned by the head of the Olympic committee, and which had a gym only big enough for three people to be in it at any one time, the report said.But along with the incompetence and mismanagement on a grand scale -- stunning for a country that outperformed the United States and Jamaica at last years athletics world championships -- the report committee raised serious concerns over the possible misappropriation by senior sports officials of millions of dollars in money and athlete apparel provided by team sponsor Nike.Those race walkers may not have received their Nike shoes because officials stole them.The investigation was ordered at the end of August by the sports minister after allegations of corruption being rife at the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK), which was disbanded after Rio amid allegations that some of the $5.7 million Olympic budget was stolen.Since the committee began its investigation, Kenyas Olympic team leader has been charged with stealing $256,000 and three other senior Olympic committee officials -- two vice presidents and the secretary general -- face charges of stealing boxes of Nike apparel that were meant for athletes. One VP was arrested hiding under his bed in an apartment filled with brand-new Nike equipment.Because those cases are in court, the report couldnt refer to them. But there was plenty more investigators could reveal.They demanded that NOCK account for how it has used the $714,000 its been given every year by Nike since 2013, and where the $520,000 worth of apparel it received every year has gone. There dont appear to be records.Also, some of Kenyas top athletes, includiing track and field world champions Asbel Kiprop, Julius Yego and Ezekiel Kemboi, may have been cheated out of tens of thousands of dollars in Nike bonuses due to them for winning medals at major competitions, bonuses they have not received from Kenyan officials, according to the report.ddddddddddddDespite the level of ineptitude, and allegedly worse, from those officials, Kenya somehow still won six golds and 13 medals in total in Rio. The track and field team was second on the table behind the U.S.The [investigating] committee would like to express concern over serious management inadequacies, poor planning and financial impropriety that affected what would have been an even greater performance, the report said. The committee would like to thank our sportsmen and women, their coaches and the honest officials for pulling off Kenyas best ever performance at the Olympics despite the glaring management inadequacies that they had to endure.All of Kenyas athletes, even its best, appeared to have been affected.Julius Yego, the javelin world champion who won silver in Rio, was one example.Yego was based at the so-called High Performance Training Center with the tiny gym in the buildup to the Olympics. He paid to join a nearby private gym that had better equipment. Yego was put in the high altitude town of Eldoret, where heavy rain at that time of year can wash away roads, and he was often unable to travel to the stadium to train. Even when he got to the stadium, Yego had to deal with the fact that the javelin runway was about 7 meters shorter than the standard length. When Yego got to the airport to travel to Rio, there was no plane ticket for him.Some other revelations in the report:* The mens rugby sevens team went on a three-week high-altitude training camp, but returned to the capital of Nairobi for a week and then traveled to Rio, which is at sea level, two weeks before their competition, nullifying any benefit from the high-altitude training.* Marathon runner Wesley Korir left a pre-Olympics training camp without permission to travel to Canada and run in a marathon as a pace-setter for his wife. The exertion led to him dropping out halfway through the Olympic marathon, the report said.* Following the womens rugby teams brawl in an airport on the way home from Rio, team officials lied and said the players were fighting over a man. Players later admitted it was over prize money promised them by the Kenyan government. ' ' '
