Summary

There were 14 gymnasts from six nations in the rings event, with performances in a compulsory and voluntary exercise. The event was held separately from the all-around. This was a specialist’s event as many of the competitors, notably the entire Italian and USA contingents, did not compete in the all-around. The gold medal went to American George Gulack, who was a Latvian emigré, followed by his teammate Tom Denton, with Italy’s Giovanni Lattuada winning bronze. Gulack was the US National Champion on the rings in 1928 and 1935, with Denton winning that title in 1932, but little else is known of Lattuada’s career.
