August 7, 2008

Blizzard introduced an event called The Spirit of Competition to commemorate the 2008 Olympic Games. Throughout the event, this pet was randomly mailed to players who were victorious after any PvP battleground. There was a 1 in 8 chance it would be mailed to a player for each battleground won.

This is a great pet if you get the chance to get one. I have mine always in my battles as my backup while I'm leveling other pets. Haven't figured out a name for him but he looks a lot like Mushu from Mulan :)

@Thetaxman, You can absolutely prove it. Look in your achievements under Feats of Strength. There are 2 achievements that are tied to the 2008 Olympics. One is the Competitor's Tabard. A rather ugly tabard IMO, that is white with the 5 olympic circles on it. And  Spirit of Competition - Proud owner of a Spirit of Competition Pet from the 2008 Spirit of Competition. Having received this on any character on your account will show it as an achievement on all of your characters.

Great battler.... take this guy to so7s and level any pet from 1 to 25 with 30-40 pet battles.  He can handle any aquatic and flying mob solo, just let your leacher have one whack and let SoC do the rest....  Also Onyx Spawn works well also

Love this pet.  Was the pet that helped me through leveling my first set of pets to 25.  If you have this, I highly recommend this for battles.

Easily the best pet to battle with.  Huge heal and very large damage spells to combine with.

 

I use this as my Anchor, as it has always been the strongest in my groups.

Sigh, I wish I could have this pet.  :(  I missed the event because of a vacation.

Feed it pet biscuits so that your Spirit of Competition is bigger than everyone else's.

I got this pet when I was a newbie to the game, and I was just trying out pvp for the first time when the Spirit of Competition event came about. This little guy was a constant companion as I leveled into Outland and Northrend.

I can't wait for Mists. I have this little guy on my Horde warrior I don't play anymore and it will be nice to see him in my Ally Pet Collector toon's inventory.

I will definitely rock this one our in pet battles.

Despite Blizzard's earlier claim the "Spirit of Competition" would be an event that would occur every two years to commemorate the Olympics, no such event occurred in 2010. One hopes there will be such an event again in 2012! Would be nice to get a chance for this pet again, or even a new pet for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Maybe we'll see a comeback for this companion in the coming summer! Seeing how the olympics are then again etc. One can only hope, I was so sad I missed out on this guy because I took a summer break.

I obtained this pet on my hunter, but not my druid which is my main. Sadly, this was before you could "learn" pets so obtained it on my hunter in order to save inventory space. Ugh I'd give anything to be able to switch it from my hunter to my druid. /: I still kick myself for only getting it on my hunter.. ;_;

I would love to see this pet brought back for London 2012. I am always thrilled to see a new pet but another chance at this would be awesome.

There used to be a web page on Blizzard site that promised Olympics every 2 years. Conveniently that page is missing and 2010 has gone by without anything about Olympics or this pet. That really sucked because I wanted this one on my main. I did some 100 BGs the last time and never got the pet. I did just one on an alt, and she got it.

Does anyone else think it's odd they aren't doing it during the actual event of the Winter Olympics this year? I'm cool they are doing it every two years, but i think it's silly to have it in the summer and not during the winter festivities.

I'm sad about this pet. Back when this was going on, Protection Warriors weren't very good in PVP, so I only got this pet on my Shaman. My Warrior is my pet collector, and alas, I will never have it on him.

I talked to a GM to see I could possibly have it switched from my Shaman to my Warrior, and they told me that it wasn't possible because you have to "earn" the pet on each character, so they cannot possibly do it. :(

I love this pet, but I hope that only the tabard remains the same for each Olympics, and we get a new, location-appropriate, pet each time. A moose or beaver for Canada? (We already have a polar bear, obviously.) Maybe a Canadian goose?

I hate this pet. Now before I get flamed for that, let me explain.
When I first started playing WoW, I had one toon. When the Olympics came around I pushed my hardest to get this little guy. One of the best pets in the game. Hands down.
About a month later, I realized that I sucked at playing a warrior and started up a shaman, who became my main toon. Now everytime I log on to my warrior (he's been down-graded to banker) I'm reminded that my main will never have this most-awesome of pets.
