Olympic silver medallist Nathan Robertson has backed a decision to stage badminton at Wembley Arena during the 2012 Games in London.
Organisers decided against building a temporary venue at the Olympic Park, a move that is unpopular with badminton's governing body.
But Robertson told BBC Sport: "For players, Wembley has a lot of history.
"To win a medal there at the London Olympics would give it a bit of extra spice rather than in a new venue."
Robertson won silver with mixed doubles partner Gail Emms at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, but the pair enjoyed less success in Beijing four years later as they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage.
