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.
