That I am Neofox.After doing a bit more research I have now figured out why Blizz has suddenly updated the http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37298 with ptach 3.3.Yes, the Competitor's Souvenir was handed out as a PET ITEM to summon and de-summon the pet as was the norm back in the BC, as was the Spirit of Competition (It's easier to obtain counter-part that was available world-wide).But along came Wotlk and all the items to summon and de-summon pets were updated to single use items (in most cases) that permanently "learnt" you the pet.But think about it, the Competitor's Souvenir was only available in china, and was was never released over there?You guessed it, Wotlk.Therefore the pet was never updated into a "learn-able" item, and stayed in its original form....Until now.The Olympics are just a couple of weeks away.This could lead us to believe that the Essence of Competition (Blue dragon pet :P) will be obtainable world-wide, which is why Blizz has updated it's item to it's more modern form.As I doubt blizz is designing things for chinese only server atm.What is even more worrying about this is that this means Blizz plans to do something with this "Blue dragon" pet during the Canadian Olympic games.Fair enough, the tabard should be obtainable every 2 years, but do chinese dragons really fit with Canada?My personal theory (and hope) is that Blizz will be handing this out to people in some form during the games, and the new Canadian-themed pet will be coming in the mini patch in a couple of weeks time, in either the Sindragosa patch, the Lich king patch, or the season 8 patch.Heh, Patch 3.3.2: Wrath of the Moose King!
