Still Rings - Gymnastics Apparatus
"The Rings" or "Still Rings" is a gymnastics apparatus only used by men. No other apparatus requires that much strength, which is one of the reasons why female gymnasts don't compete on the rings. Two wooden rings are suspended on wire cables from 5,75 meters and hang 275 cm off the floor. The gymnast performs a routine demonstrating balance, strength, and dynamic skills without letting the rings themselves swing. Find technical instructions for the rings at gymnastics main.
