He did have something in mind but in the end, we all do. The thing is :
1. One of the rules of that contest was that the participants must not know what the test will be. Harry found out there were going to be dragons, so he did prepare but the preparation was basically cheating. He also told Cedric, which again was cheating (not that others didn’t cheat, I’m just pointing out he was cheating, even though I admit it was to save his life ! )
2. You were also not allowed to take any other magical objects with you except for your wand and Harry basically went around this rule by using a spell to call his broom. 🙂 No other contestant did that. It was not a direct violation of the rule but a clever bending of it, a use of a weakness in the contest rules. A trickster thing indeed or at least that’s what I think.
3. Harry uses his broom riding skills in that contest because this is what he does best. Riding a broom is a…magical sport:) that involves being in the flow, quickly reacting to new situations, focus and stunts. Other contestants did other types of spells. It is relevant he chose the broom and not a charming spell or a sleeping spell or a persuasion spell, you know?
I will be back later, this thread is very interesting.
