The still rings have been a difficult event for the Gopher’s men’s gymnastics team in recent years, but they are looking to turn things around this season.
“The rings have been a bit of a problem spot for us over the years,” head coach Mike Burns said. “But we’re really looking forward to this season."
The Gophers finished tenth in the 2011 team standings for still rings. But they have six guys returning from last year’s lineup.
They are led by fifth year senior and rings specialist Travis Heaver, who has set the pace so far in the team’s two intrasquad meets.
“I’m feeling good about this season,” Heaver said. “The team is looking good, and I think we’ve got a pretty good shot this year on rings. I’ve been working hard and getting stronger. My goal is to make it to the event finals.”
