The dream of watching his younger sister possibly run around in red and blue ensured Melbournes Lynden Dunn had no hesitation in volunteering to be a part of the AFL Players Associations inaugural Womens Football Advisory Committee.Dunn, who has played 165 games for the Demons, is a passionate advocate for womens football. His younger sister plays junior footy, while his dad is also involved as a womens coach.The committee, which recently held its first meeting, was set up to drive the strategic direction of female player representation within the recently-announced National Womens League.Dunn frustrated by lack of senior opportunitiesDunn, the only current AFL player on the committee, said he pushed his name forward when the group was being established.I put my hand up for it, Dunn told ESPN. I am delegate for Melbourne for the AFLPA and ... my sister plays junior footy, my dad coaches womens football, so its something Im really passionate about.[The committee] had our first meeting last Friday, we spoke about the key issues and what we want to pursue in the immediate future in regards to the CBA and player welfare - [it is] important the women get the same high standards and opportunities as men, seeing as theyre going to be playing at the highest standards.With the [womens] competition coming in, its something I wanted to be involved in.Its exciting. Its given my sister, whos 12, a chance to play AFL football. Shes grown up watching me play and shes always wanted to. Now she has an opportunity, so for girls like my sister, they can now play on the biggest stage at the highest level, and thats very exciting. For the girls that are eligible to get drafted this year and play in the inaugural season, it must be so exciting for them and for womens sport in general in Australia.Dunn added it would be special if his sister was good enough to be drafted by the Demons.For her to play at Melbourne would be so special, as she has grown up a passionate Demons supporter - her favourite player is Angus Brayshaw - so for her to have that chance to play at Melbourne or any other club is pretty special, he said.Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs have been viewed as trailblazers for the womens game, having staged a number of exhibition games in recent seasons. They were rewarded with two of the eight inaugural licenses, alongside Collingwood, Carlton, Adelaide, Brisbane, Greater Western Sydney and Fremantle.Dunn, 29, said he was extremely proud of the work the Demons had put into their womens team.[Ive been] very lucky to see it first-hand, not just from a family perspective but also the footy club has done a remarkable job building the womens game along with the Western Bulldogs, he said.Our club genuinely cares about the female side of the game, and growing that - theres a huge opportunity for the club going forward, and its very exciting. Hopefully other clubs are looking at ours as to how to set up a womens team.Alongside Dunn in the committee are AFLPA chief Paul Marsh, Libby Lyons, director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, Prue Gilbert, co-founder and CEO of Grace Papers, and current players Courtney Cramey, Emma King, Leah Kaslar, Bree White, Tiarna Ernst, Lauren Arnell and Maddy Collier.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes is back.The face of the Rio Olympics, Paes has shied away from the cameras since the opening ceremony. But he was back in view on Friday, bowing to Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, who arrived wearing a white kimono for a meeting with her Rio counterpart.Paes will hand over the Olympic flag to Kioke at Sundays closing ceremony, the moment eyes turn from South America to Asia, where the next three Winter and Summer Olympics will be held.Paes repeated his spirited defense of holding the Rio Games, saying the Olympics had been a catalyst for building a new subway-line extension, an express-bus system and a renovated port area. He cited a mix or private and public money to stage the games, arguing they were reasonably priced and would leave no white elephants.I think its an amazing legacy for Rio that people will have for many years, Paes said.Credited by the International Olympic Committee for pushing preparations, Paes has often tried to lower expectations about Rios Olympics, which have been plagued by empty seats and organization problems.He did it again with Koike, saying Tokyo is a much more ddeveloped city than Rio.ddddddddddddIf you want to be fair to Rio, you cannot compare us to Tokyo, to Chicago to Madrid, Paes said, citing cities that were beaten out by Rio in 2009 when the IOC chose its 2016 host. These are cities that have much better infrastructure. They come from developed countries. You have to compare Rio to Rio.Paes said the shift to Tokyo should please the IOC, which is coming off difficult games in Sochi, Russia, and Rio de Janeiro.We come from a tropical experience, the Latin ways of Brazil, which sometimes made the IOC members a little bit crazy, Paes said.Paes also noted Koikes kimono, a traditional garment that is used for important ceremonial moments.The great Japanese hospitality is represented by the kimono, Kioke explained. Thats why Im wearing one.Paes replied: The next time I meet her in Tokyo, Im going to wear a kimono, he said.
