Neviarouski made his Olympic debut at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, competing in two swimming events. In the 100 m freestyle, he challenged seven other swimmers on the fifth heat, including Lithuania's Rolandas Gimbutis, a member of the swimming team for the California Golden Bears. He edged out Greece's Aristeidis Grigoriadis to take the third spot by a quarter margin (0.25), with a time of 50.36 seconds.[2] Two days later, Neviarouski placed second behind Hungary's Krisztián Takács, on the sixth heat of the men's 50 m freestyle by one hundredth of a second (0.01), clocking at 23.13 seconds.[3]

Four years after competing in his last Olympics, Neviarouski qualified for his second Belarusian team, as a 27-year-old, at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He eclipsed a FINA B-standard entry time of 49.80 (100 m freestyle) from the Serbian Open Championships in Belgrade.[4][5] Neviarouski challenged seven other swimmers on the fifth heat, including three-time Olympian Örn Arnarson of Iceland. He raced to sixth place and forty-fourth overall by six hundredths of a second (0.06) behind Uruguay's Martín Kutscher in 50.14 seconds.[6] Neviarouski also teamed up with Pavel Sankovich, Yauheni Lazuka, and Viktar Vabishchevich in the 4 × 100 m medley relay. Swimming the freestyle leg, Neviarouski recorded a time of 49.76 seconds, and the Belarusian team finished the heats in sixteenth overall with a final time of 3:39.39.[7]
