Aaron Ramsey is looking forward to playing his part in Britain's gold medal chase at the 2012 Olympics after being named in Stuart Pearce's 18-man squad.

The Arsenal midfielder is one of five Welshmen to have been included in Team GB.

The 21-year-old cannot wait to grace the biggest stage in sport and believes a team brimming with Premier League pedigree is capable of claiming home soil success.

"Playing in the Olympics will be a great experience and I am looking forward to it so much," Ramsey told the Gunners' official website.

"It's fair to say that this could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Quality

"I haven't played under Stuart Pearce before so that is something to look forward to as well. And looking at the squad of players we have I think we have a lot of quality in there.

"Now we need to work together over the next few weeks and get an understanding of each other.

"If we do that then I'm sure we can do well, especially with home advantage.

"It will be a good experience and a different experience to play in the Olympics, being part of a British team and playing alongside some of the English players too."
