olympic ponderings

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but it seems like every time they do one of those little athlete bios, they mention that the person in question wanted to go to the Olympics as a young child and spent time practicing whatever sport in order to achieve that goal. Now I can't help but wonder if there are any children out there that don't, at some point, want to go to the Olympics? Are there really kids out there that are watching the games thinking, "Nah - I'd really rather be a mediocre swimmer and not get past JV on my high school swim team"?
