Many footballers would probably consider the champions league more of a pinnacle than the World Cup even. In reality in most of the "professional" sports, the Olympics is not the pinacle. Tennis, basketball, golf (coming back to the olympics), soccer and even hockey, probably all have championships that are more coveted than an Olympic gold.
In terms of an international competition where you represent your country then it's probably the pinacle, outside of soccer where the olympics is widely disregarded.
