BRAINBUSTER: no Winter Olympic medals have ever been won by a _________ nation. A what nation?

ANSWER: a "TROPICAL" nation..

Although traditionally associated with cold weather nations, the Winter Olympics have also had participation from several tropical nations. The typical climate of these nations is not conducive to participation in winter sports, and no Winter Olympic medals have ever been won by a tropical nation. Probably because of that, their entries are a subject of human interest stories during the Games.
