The subject of this article or section was part of the Spirit of Competition event, a world event to celebrate the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Essence of Competition

The Competitor's Souvenir is a special companion, only available on servers in China.

During the 2008 Spirit of Competition event, 500 people per day was randomly selected from among those that completed several high level in-game goals during the event, such as raising a craft profession from 350 to 375. The pet, 'Essence of Competition', is a small blue and purple Asian dragon. The model is the same as the pet contained in the [Gold Medallion].

A sample of this companion can be found in the battle rooms in Ironforge and in Orgrimmar, accompanying NPCs that are nominally there to redeem the code for the pet. The presence of these NPCs on US and EU servers is a bug; This pet will not be released on US and EU servers.
