As peridotite pointed out, it is Sveiki. Not much else to say from me tbh, but I am Lithuanian.

Favourite sport does not cover it, I think. There's a reason we say it's like a second religion, no? XD
Just figured I'd add that

      Hey! I definitely don't want to argue, but I am confused. In trying to learn Lithuanian, all the sources I've come across say that "labas" is casual and that "sveiki" is polite. Is that not correct?

labas is like a "hello" whereas sveiki (or sveikinam) is like a "greetings/welcome"
but I hate both of those terms because they sound so formal. i say "labutis" which is basically saying "hi-sies"
i think the previous people were just correcting the original poster, who put "svieki" instead of "sveiki" which dramatically changes the sound ^^

      Gotcha. Thanks guys!

      Also, I am working on a speech that I'm doing for Gediminas in my APEURO class, would anyone be willing to check my absolutely god-awful grammar at any point? (I'm doing it in Lithuanian and suffering). I would really appreciate it!
