Abstract: Within competitive gymnastics, a still rings routine consists of swing, strength and hold elements. The difficulty and execution of these elements is evaluated by a panel of judges. Although the human eye can distinguish quite accurately between different elements and whether an element is correctly executed, internal research by the European Gymnastics Union (UEG) has shown that the timing of the strength and hold elements is less accurate. Consistent and precise timing of these elements is crucial, because a deduction of 0.3 point must be given when the Hold Time (HT) is less than 2.0 seconds. This deduction could make a big difference as can be seen in small gaps of the scores of the still rings final at the EC in 2014 and 2015: 0.200 point between first and fifth place and 0.333 point between second and last place respectively. A digital support tool, Smart Rings Jury Tool, was developed to support the evaluation of HT. The aim of this study was to implement and evaluate this tool during the Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) European Championships 2016 (More)
