Which teams are in the 2021 Men’s World Championship?
Sixteen teams, divided into two groups of eight, are participating.
|Group A||Group B|
|Czech Republic||United States|
Why is Russia listed as ‘ROC’?
The World Anti-Doping Agency banned Russia from international competition for four years last December. The ban includes Olympic Games and world championships and Russia’s flag or name cannot be used. Athletes, however, are not banned from competing but can only do so under a neutral flag.
ROC stands for Russian Olympic Committee, and instead of the national anthem being played, Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 will be played.
