Why 'TRI' and not 'T&T'?
Am I the only Tobagonian who gets annoyed every time this twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago is abbreviated to "TRI" at the Olympic and World Games?
The fact that this continues to be done without a major outcry from Tobagonians means that those responsible (whether it is the T&TOC, the IOC, or both) will continue to use it ad infinitum – much to my chagrin.
If someone can enlighten me as to the compelling reason (s) for using this abbreviation as opposed to the more appropriate "T&T" (which also has three characters) , then I will be very grateful , If not I am calling on all Tobagonians to lobby to have this changed at the earliest opportunity
