BEIJING, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Olympic badminton venue chief on Tuesday blasted at a report about a flag complaint lodged by a British Olympic official, labelling it "totally ungrounded." Ren Chunhui, executive deputy director of Beijing Olympic badminton competition venue located at the Beijing University of Technology (BJUT), said that the media department of the venue has been informed of "the irresponsible report".

    An Australian newspaper reported Monday that British Olympic official Clive Woodward complained in an official chefs de mission meeting that the English flag had been hung at the badminton venue, not the Union Jack, an oversight that will upset Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish competitors.

    "We didn't hang the English flag in our gym, not Union Jack flag either," said Ren, emphasizing that some Britons working at the venue can prove it.

    "We are considering seeking apology from the reporter," said the venue chief.

    The Olympic badminton competition, scheduled to be held in the BJUT gymnasium from August 9 to August 17, will attract a record 50teams.
