There were joint silver medalists (and no bronze medalists) in 1982 and 1990. There were joint bronze medalists in 1992, 2002, 2012 (3) and 2016.

The "Great Britain and Ireland" team represented the two separate independent countries of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland from 1958 to 2000. From 2002, England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland (a combined Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland team) have competed as separate teams.

Of the teams that have competed in all 31 championships, only Italy and Bermuda have never won a medal; Italy's best finishes were ties for 4th place in 2004 and 2008 and Bermuda's was 16th in 1958.
