    I think the two letters are intended to be embedded in the logo in a very subliminal sort of way. It is barely noticeable, but the art is intentionally shaped the way it is.

    From the IAAF release:
    The logo design is comprised of three main elements: the 'W' of World, which is also a symbol of an athlete's arms raised in victory; the 'A' of Athletics, which also represents an athlete's focus as they prepare for the road ahead; and an arc over both to represent the entire athletics community coming together

    I hope they used a lot of lube otherwise they'd be red raw after that much wankery.

    Well I wondered about that, and thought he may have just been referring to what the sport is called in the US of A.

    Or the ITF.

    WAA would have been another option to use three initials.

    Maybe someone will have a "clever" moment and think of what WANKER might represent.

    Another international governing body in an Olympic sport has the initials WA.

    But they don't seem to use the initials.

    Stupid move.

    NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, PGA, WTA, FIFA, WBA, UFC... every successful pro sports organization has a 3-letter or longer abbreviation. Two letters or full words just won't work.

    That actually was the acronym for the IF of taekwondo - the World Taekwondo Federation. They changed it last year after they found out what WTF stood for in many minds. They shortened it to simply World Taekwondo.
