‘Conduct’ means any act or omission to perform an act.

‘Betting’ includes placing, accepting or withdrawing a bet as well as causing a bet to be placed, accepted or withdrawn.
An ‘agreement’ includes an arrangement.
An ‘appropriate body’ includes:
You were reckless if you foresaw the possibility that your conduct would conceal the corruption of the betting outcome of the event but went ahead with your actions regardless.
