About
The split ring is a somewhat underused skill—particularly among Americans for whom it is almost forbidden—especially considering that it boasts the same value as the much more popular switch ring. It is more common among the lower-level Chinese gymnasts who will often pair it with the switch ring to just get as many C-level rings in there as possible so no one has to do any tumbling. Most who perform the split ring also perform the switch ring at some point in the routine.
