    Top search item for WAF was Web Application Firewall when I tried it. The fact that that is not an organisation makes it a possibility?

    Problem is WA is not in the logo and there is no suggestion it will be a self-identifier.

    Sure, it will be shortened to WA on the message board but that's not going to be helpful in all contexts.

    I'm sorry, that abbr. is already spoken for, as in the state of Washington!!

    I agree with the poster above, but add an H at the end - the World Athletics Hegemony, so it's just . . . WAH! . . .

    The amusing thing is that USATF used to be The Athletics Congress (TAC/USA) from 1980 until it gave up and changed its name at the end of 1992. They used to get calls at the National Office in Indy asking about basketball schedules and the like.

    The TAC/USA name was used for two reasons: because the rest of the world uses Athletics as the name of our sport, and to to avoid some of the old AAU controversies between the Track & Field and LDR Committees. But in the USA, it just didn’t work, I recall that journalists who knew what TAC was would sometimes mistakenly say it was the “Track Athletics Congress.”

    LOL! That's what I thought it was until this very moment. Learn something new every day.

    From a USA point of view, WTF would have been the obvious choice.

    That acronym already in widespread use for a common expletive expression.
