2011 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships

The 2011 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships took place from September 7–11, 2011 in Bratislava, Slovakia[1] under the auspices of International Canoe Federation. It was the 34th edition. Bad weather conditions on September 7 and 8 forced the organizers to make changes to the schedule. The events were all held over the remaining three days of the Championships.[2] The women's C1 team event debuted at these championships, but did not count as an official medal event due to insufficient number of participating federations.[3][4]

The event was also the only global qualification for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.[5]

It was the first time Slovakia hosted the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships. The races were held in the Čunovo Water Sports Centre on an offshoot of the river Danube near the borders with Austria and Hungary. Slovakia won the medal table with 3 golds, 2 silvers and 3 bronzes.
