11 countries participated in the 2011 championships: Finland, Kazakhstan, Norway, Russia, Sweden, the United States (group A) and Belarus, Canada, Hungary, Latvia, and the Netherlands (group B).[2] Australia was supposed to participate[3] but didn't come because of the floodings. At least five more countries wanted to come, but the tournament format at the time did not allow more than twelve teams.[4][5] For the first time, Finland won the group stage. Russia became the world champion, with Finland second, and Sweden third.[6]
