The 2011 World Women's Handball Championship, the 20th event hosted by the International Handball Federation, was held in Brazil from 2 to 18 December 2011.[1]

The winner qualified for the 2012 Olympic Handball tournament and the 2013 World Championship, while teams finished second to seventh took the Olympic Qualifying tournament spots.[2]

Norway won the title for the second time after defeating France 32–24 in the final, thus became only the second team after Denmark to possess the World Championship, European Championship and Olympic Games title in the same time. France, on the other hand, lost its second consecutive World Championship final after fell short against Russia in 2009. By winning the tournament, Norway qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics as World champions, while Sweden, which finished runner-up behind Norway in the European Championship, moved up to take the vacated European champion spot and also secured its place for the Olympics.[3]

Spain triumphed over Denmark in the bronze final 24–18 and won their first ever World Championship medal,[4] while hosts Brazil knocked out title holders Russia 36–20 in the match for the fifth place to take their best ever result.[5]

Statistics[edit]

Ranking and awards[edit]

No placement matches for places 9 to 16 were played, but as those places might be decisive for qualification to the Olympics, the regulations ranked those teams. The losing teams of the Round of 16 were ranked based on a their group stage record (points, goal-difference, goals scored) against teams placed 1st to 4th (those advancing to the Round of 16).[15]
