ANW8 Ring Swing

American Ninja Warrior 8's Ring Swing in Oklahoma City

The Ring Swing is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the second obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 8 in Oklahoma City. Competitors would have to grab a ring, swing it to a post halfway across the water, and hook it onto the post. Then, they must make a transition to the second ring, hop it over the post, and swing to the landing platform. The majority of competitors got through it, though some had to swing twice.

During Oklahoma City finals, the second ring's chain was modified, so it would only swing halfway to the landing platform, making the dismount a tougher element of the obstacle.

The Ring Swing returned on American Ninja Warrior 9, as the second obstacle in Denver. However, the first ring was not hooked, and the gap between the starting platform to the obstacle and the obstacle to the landing platform were made larger, requiring competitors to swing farther.

A variant of the Ring Swing, named as the Giant Ring Swing, appeared as the first obstacle in Stage Two on American Ninja Warrior 8, replacing the Rope Jungle from the previous season. Just like its name implied, this obstacle is a supersized version of the Ring Swing, in which:

  • Competitors would start 30 feet on an elevated platform and swing 15 feet to hook the first ring.
  • Then, they must reach to the second ring, which has no chains and must be jumped to a third hook, which is five feet away.
  • Then, they must grab the third ring, and unhook it to swing 15 feet and grab a lache bar.

There are three bars that must be swung from to complete the obstacle, which served as a medium for the Down Up Salmon Ladder. In its first appearance, only Michael Torres failed on this obstacle.
