Some additional facts :
1) Trinidad and Tobago is the smallest country by area to ever play a FIFA world cup.
2) Haddaway, known for What is Love, is one of the most famous trinidadians.
3) Trinidad and Tobago have won 15 of their 19 olympic medals, including their 3 gold medals, in athletics.

To that extent... Jamaica is even more of a "one-trick pony":
They have won 78 medals, of which only one wasn't won in athletics (David Weller's bronze medal in cycling, at Moscow '80). Furthermore, all but 3 of those 77 medals were won in sprint events.
Thus, sprint event-related medals make a whopping 94.87% of Jamaican medals!! In comparison, T&T's athletics medals make a 78.95% share.

Since the Nicki Minaj hint has a typo, I think it should be replaced altogether with Haddaway. That song's totally gonna be in my head all day now...

Agreed. You accept steel drum, but not steel, when the question asks 'what kind of drum.....?' It makes no sense. It is called a steel drum in the UK.
