I guess it depends on how important you preceive an Olympic gold medal to be, personally, I would think most players would trade GS's titles for an Olympic gold medal.
The way I see it, an Olympic gold medal is something very special that a player only has the opportunity to achieve once every four years, (so probably only 2 or 3 times in their career), if, and only if, they are amongst the very best players in their country. They all have four opportunities every year of their entire careers to win a GS title.
On top of that, of course, is the honour of being chosen to represent and being able to win something on behalf of their country.
If I were in their position, I know that an Olympic medal of any colour would mean far more to me than any Grand Slam title, and, naturally, that's the only frame of reference I have.
