They didn't do anything for the last one, so not sure to be honest. Unlikely would be my guess :(

Ive been waiting for them to do this again since the 2008 Olympics. I got the tabbard first time around but never got the pet. Pretty sure it originally involved pvp in some way and at that time I was only playing a healer and dreaded pvp.

If i had only known i woulda just sucked it up. :cry: I hope they bring it out again but im not holding my breath.

I have an unplayed char on a remote server and the only reason I've not deleted it, is because he has that tabard.

They did in 2008, so I expected them to do it with the last one too, and even World cups and such, but no .... I guess the first time was only because there wasent really much of a blizzard pet shop back then.
We also used to get pets when WoW got a year older, now we get a rep and exp boost for 10 days and pets in the shop that we can buy.

And yes, you had to do pvp for that one. one or a few people in every finished battleground was sellected to be rewarded with the pet for their actions inthere.
I still got no idea how they picked them, it wasent for kills or point cause I farmed them on all the chars I had at the time (hated it and wanted to cry and probably did a bit :D), and none of my pretty ladies was ever first on kills or points, or atleast most wasnt.

We asked for a Moose for the 2010 Winter games and that didn't happen. I doubt they'll give us anything for Sochi, although I wouldn't mind a bear on a unicycle!

On the plus side, the 10 year anniversary of WoW and 20 year anniversary of Warcraft this year should be worth something. I would not be adverse to an Orc Peon that says "What you want?" when you click on him!

To get the Spirit of Competition, you had to win a battleground. And it wasn't guaranteed that winning would get you the pet. Just doing the BG got you the tabard.

I was level 60 or 61 and had not yet done my epic Warlock dreadsteed quest chain, and refused to pay for it when the quest would get it for me for "free". Being in the 60s, I was put in the max level BG with the 70s. On a slower mount, with significantly less health. And my side had to *win*.

I earned that dragon.

That said, I was always surprised they didn't continue it for later Olympics. It was definitely incentive to get people to try PVP. It was the first time I ventured into a battleground. I remember standing next to the flag carrier in WSG and asking my guild why she was hiding.

I deleted my Baby Blizzard Bear once, and all I had to do was submit a ticket explaining what happened. If you have the achievement for obtaining the Spirit of Competition (Feat of Strength, it'll be the year 2008), you'll definitely get it back. If not, submit a ticket anyways and see what happens.

Its been a while since I deleted it,but won't hurt to try. I just figured since it was due to my careless stupidity they wouldn't give it a thought since it was my error so the worse that can happen is be told no. Thank you much :)
