NCAA Rings in the 1970s

van Gelder, Chen Yibing, Zanetti

The Lords of the Rings video has been updated with 3 more legends, two of them still competing. The NEW section starts at 4min 35sec.

4:35 Yuri van Gelder – the most beloved ring strength man over the internet. He brought new strength standards in the discipline of still rings and a big controversy after being caught with coke. Maybe worked towards his popularity :)

6:51 Chen Yibing – the man with the smoothest transitions and a learning book type performances. His signature routine with high diversity of elements, executes in smoothest flow, brought him dozens of gold medals in the discipline of still rings.

8:52 Arthur Zanetti – the one who changed the meaning of “clean execution”. It is just e great experience editing his videos and seeing the hold time of his strength elements to hit 3 seconds each time. Maybe in the Brazilian translation of the Code of Points they changed “2s” with “3s” and so long does he freezes every time like having a Swiss stopwatch in his ears.

I’d rank Chen Yibing the best all-time. For his era.

Rings – Morgan, Lytwyn, Purvis

Canada goes 1-2 on Rings.

Rings Final results
Morgan CAN 15.100
Lytwyn CAN 14.800
Purvis SCO 14.766

This is the first competition I can recall where RINGS is the best apparatus for Team Canada. :-)

official results

Rings and Pommels are critical for Canada in future Team competitions.

Click PLAY or watch Scott Morgan’s Rings on YouTube.

Coach Vali told me Scott got 0.2 less in start score than they had hoped.

Click PLAY or watch Zachary Clay’s Pommels on YouTube.

Ken Ikeda, our Pommel man, was injured on Vault landing. Jackson Payne, another of our Pommel guys, is just returning from 2 years away in Korea. Anderson Loran has strong Pommels, too, but did not compete that apparatus this competition.

New National Coach Tony Smith will be fitting the pieces together to come up with the highest Team score. With potential for individual apparatus Finals.
