Backward swing

(Sport: Men's Gymnastics - Rings)


The gymnast should get into a downswing position with his body straight at the hips and his arms straight at all times. Once he is near the hanging position, he should use his feet to propel his body upward into a position where his hips are above his shoulders and his legs are parallel to his arms. The next stage is for the gymnast to turn the rings so that his thumbs are pointing outwards and then move the rings backward while simultaneously using the arms and legs to complete the turn.
