Blizzard introduced an event called The Spirit of Competition to commemorate the 2008 Olympic Games. Unlike the Spirit of Competition, this pet requires a special code to obtain. The code was redeemable at Gilbarta Grandhammer in Ironforge (alliance) or Muja in Orgrimmar (horde).
Throughout each day of the 2008 event in China, the code was mailed to 500 random players. Only players who had achieved various in-game milestones during the event were eligible for a chance to receive the code. Some milestones included having an Arena rating of 1650+, increasing reputation for certain Outland factions from less than revered to exalted, or raising a crafting profession from 350 or less to 375.
In the World of Warcraft, what more reveals the Essence of Competition than running around with blues and purples. This little dragon allows its owner to do just that. As for me, I suppose I'll keep running around with Father Winter's Helper... (dang greens and whites).
