The 2011 senior world synchronized skating championships took place in Helsinki, Finland, on 7 to 9 April.
Access to live internet and TV broadcasts of the event was restricted, so it was not possible to watch the event outside Finland. Results, however, were updated live during the competition, allowing teams’ progress to be tracked. The final results are at: http://www.isuresults.com/results/syswc2011/
