Stabbing the Rings

Stabbing the Rings
The next part of the course as they come off the jump is to stab the rings. You can’t see it, but that skier has a small “jousting” rod in his hand. He has to make the jump, swerve again and stab the three rings that are hanging from the poles.
The course consists of several jumps and several sets of rings…..and of course, it’s all about time and no mistakes.
Oh, did I mention, they’re going really fast.┬áSo, as you can imagine, it takes a lot of focus.
