Shouldn't 'Team GB' really be 'GB Team' ? I vaguely recall not so long ago whenever a team title was expressed 'Team' came second, was perhaps the qualifier. Where has this idea of Team coming first in the title come from? Is it an Americanism? If so why are we using it?

Re: Team GB or GB Team?
Mmm, not sure. Sorry.
I suppose it's a form of anastrophe.
Anastrophe is the deliberate changing of normal word order for emphasis.
