Every athlete that is, unless you're a footballer. The men's GB football team will be named in the next week and it will be the first time since 1960 that Britain has entered a team in the Games. The place of football in the Olympic programme has long been a contentious issue, but GB's participation only serves to highlight to me what a farce its inclusion is.
Ever since I watched Sally Gunnell win gold in the 400m hurdles at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, it has been a dream of mine to compete at an Olympic Games. I think it is a pretty safe bet that Craig Bellamy, Steven Fletcher et al have not harboured these ambitions for the past 20 years.
Rather, the Olympics seems to be a handy back-up for the home nations players whose countries failed to qualify for Euro 2012, or the England players who were not good enough to make Roy Hodgson's squad.
There is no doubt in my mind that football should not be an Olympic sport. I would also extend this exclusion to golf, which will be reintroduced to the Olympic programme in Rio in four years' time after a 112-year absence.
My convictions are based on the belief that the Olympic Games should be the absolute apex of your sport and there are few who would argue that any footballer would prefer an Olympic gold medal to winning the World Cup. Similarly, the number of golfers who value an Olympic gold higher than winning a major are equally thin on the ground.
For me, there is no defence for football's inclusion. The fact that it is effectively a youth competition (15 players of the squad of 18 must be under 23, with three over-age players permitted) only devalues further its place in the Games. No other Olympic sport has such restrictions. As Dai Greene, Britain's 400m hurdles world champion and a favourite for gold in London points out, football's involvement risks overshadowing some of the minority sports who have to wait for an event such as the Olympics to attract any press attention.
The beauty of the Olympic Games is that sports in which GB excel, but which may not be "mainstream", such as canoeing, can force their way into the public's consciousness, even if it is only for a limited time.
The presence of a GB football team threatens to dominate the newspapers with stories such as which of the WAGs decided to watch the match, potentially displacing stories of genuine sporting achievement.
In my sport, badminton, the Olympics is unquestionably the pinnacle of my sporting ambitions, and sports such as track cycling and rowing regard the Olympics so highly that all their training programmes are designed on a four-year cycle to coincide with each Olympic Games.
I believe the number of tickets left unsold for the Olympic football matches demonstrates the public's apathy to it as an Olympic sport and only further strengthens the case for its exclusion.
At the time of writing, over a million football tickets remain unsold (sales are particularly poor for matches at Hampden) and there are discussions in place about giving tickets away to local school children to avoid having empty stadiums.
Compare this with other sports like swimming and cycling where tickets have been like gold dust.
No matter how exciting a prospect it may be for me to potentially be a team-mate of David Beckham next month, I wish the footballers would leave the Olympics to athletes who truly value it.
