Australian wrestler Farzad Tarash is a realist.
And so, while medals are unlikely in London, he is already eyeing off a potential second Olympic appearance.
Tarash is Australia's lone wrestling representative in London, after qualifying in March and cementing his ticket with a win at the national titles in June.
He'll contest the 60kg freestyle division on August 11, the pinnacle of years of working towards an Olympics.
Four years ago in Beijing, he also qualified a spot but, on account of the tricky selection rules for wrestling, wasn't selected to fill the place he earned.
Now in London, Tarash is drinking it all in.
"It's by far the highlight of the career so far," he said.
"I'm in the Olympics.
"Obviously with Australia not being so good in wrestling, I have to be realistic and not just say I'm going to get a gold medal.
"But I've trained hard enough.
"Whatever result comes out, I'm happy with that."
Tarash's draw isn't decided until the day before competition, but the Melbourne engineer will be hoping for a favourable line-up to stretch out his debut Olympics.
Tarash, whose father was a national wrestling champion in Iran and whose brothers also wrestle, said whatever happens, he is aiming to continue what he started in London.
"After I come back, it's definitely not over for me.
"I'm giving it 100 per cent."
