I don't think it's wrong, or not exactly wrong. Here, we are not telling Pyry to go [away]; rather we are encouraging him. Let's imagine that our sporttimies friend Pyry has entered a 5 km run. As he runs past the spot where we are standing by the side of the course, we begin shouting encouragement: "Go, Pyry! Hyvä, Pyry!" Does it make more sense now?
