Cancel the Olympics. Everybody out of London. Pack away the hurdles. Put all that longjump sand in this bag. I don't care where you put it, just get it out of my sight. Athletic festivities are cancelled because Blizzard have just destroyed the Spirit of Competition, the every-other-yearly event invented to celebrate the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Back then, if you were victorious in any battleground you'd have a chance of picking up the Spirit of Competition, a tiny dragon pet who'd follow you around and look a bit Chinese. For London 2012 we get nothing. Not even a grubby pigeon pet with mangled, scabby toes.
