Switzerland’s Karl Frei was a rings specialist, winning the gold medal in this event, but placing no better than 26th on any other apparatus in London. The silver medal went to Michael Reusch, who had finished sixth on rings at Berlin in 1936 and won a silver medal in the event at the 1938 World Championships. Zdeněk Růžička of Czechoslovakia won a bronze medal, as he did in floor exercise. Růžička was only eighth in the compulsories on rings but a brilliant optional exercise put him on the podium.
