I was recently told about these extraordinary ‘travelling rings’ at Riverside Park, New York and after a bit of research I also found images and videos of these swings from Muscle Beach, Santa Monica. These athletes or ‘flyers’ make swinging on metal hanging rings from one end to another look effortless. There are some great videos of the ‘travelling rings’ being used on youtube, with kids as young as 5 having a go! This is a great example of fitness disguised as play and shows that you are never too old for a swing. I wonder could these ever work in Australia?
