I'm assuming you meant what is half of a millimeter, because half of a centimeter is just 5 millimeter. But smaller than millimeter is micrometers, which are 1000th of a millimeter, or called microns. So half of a millimeter is 500 microns.

It's kind of like if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

Considering the Olympics have been around since the 8th century BC not sure it's only a TV show.

Probably hitting you up for a donation so some poor electrician could send their kids there.
