1. To the World Taekwondo Federation – could you please change your name? To the World Taekwondo Association, or the International Taekwondo Federation, or basically anything else but the World Taekwondo Federation?
2. To the New York Times – can you get yourself to pause and resist the urge to abbreviate? Or at least proof read whatever you write?
Otherwise, you will end up making statements like these:
The stadium announcer read a statement from the W.T.F., saying, This is a strong violation of the spirit of tae kwon do and the Olympic Games….”
However, W.T.F. officials later said their ban of Matos was not official, and they would discuss the situation with the International Olympic Committee.
Or is that a coded message to your readers – on what you think of Matos kicking the referree, of those officials and the Federation?
Whatever it was, all I can say is – World Taekwondo Federation ? 😛
