Athletics chief Philip Juico cleared the talk surrounding the inverted Philippine flag on the uniforms of Filipino sprinters Eric Cray and Kayla Richardson during Tuesday’s 100-meter competitions in the Southeast Asian Games, saying it was just a mistake by the supplier.

Juico said that the inverted flag with the red portion of it above the blue one is a mistake made by the uniform supplier which has already been fixed.
