The Spirit of Competition is the fifth episode of season one on Legend of Korra. It aired on May 5, 2012 on Nickelodeon in the United States.


Mako romantically flirts with and dates Hiroshi's daughter, Asami, much to the annoyance and jealously of Korra. And when he refuses her, she passes an evening with Bolin, but passionately kisses Mako after their next match, disappointing and hurting Bolin's feelings. By the end of the episode, the Fire Ferrets forgive each other and advance to the championship match against the three-time defending champions known as the Wolfbats.
