The Olympic Games in Rio has completed. What will it be remembered for and what is happening in world and Belarusian sport? This was the topic of discussion on August 21 in the talk show What's Going On? on the TV channel RTR-Belarus.

Egor Khrustalyov:
Mr Mikhnevich, maybe you know... People have very impressive facial gestures during hammer throw. What words are usually said at this moment?

Andrei Mikhnevich, shot put world champion, Honored Master of Sports of the Republic of Belarus: 
According to Ivan, he shouted "Fly". That is the usual emotion. If the hammer is flying, what should you shout? Only "fly"!

Everything else is not usually shown by the camera.
