World Artistic Gymnastics Championships – Men's rings

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The men's still rings competition was an inaugural event at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. It was not held in 1905 and 1907.

Three medals are awarded: gold for first place, silver for second place, and bronze for third place. Tie breakers have not been used in every year. In the event of a tie between two gymnasts, both names are listed, and the following position (second for a tie for first, third for a tie for second) is left empty because a medal was not awarded for that position. If three gymnastics tied for a position, the following two positions are left empty.


Bold number in brackets denotes record number of victories.
