Men's rings competition at the 2008 Summer Olympics was held on August 18 at the Beijing National Indoor Stadium.

The eight competitors (with a maximum of two per nation) with the highest scores in qualifying proceeded to the men's rings finals. There, each gymnast performed again; the scores from the final round (ignoring qualification) determined final ranking.

  1. ^ Scoring in artistic gymnastics is based on two separate scores that are then combined in order to come to the final score. The A score measures the difficulty of each element (and combinations of elements) within the routine, while the B score evaluates the performance, ie, the "execution, composition and artistry" of the routine.
