USA Weightlifting is pleased to announce that the 2017 National Masters Championships will be streamed for free on USAWeightlifting.org.

"Masters are an important group of athletes in our organization," USA Weightlifting CEO Phil Andrews said. "With such an important meet for Masters athletes, we are excited that we are able to share it with a worldwide audience."

More than 500 athletes will compete in Savannah, GA, March 9-12 in the premiere USA Masters Weightlifting event of the year. 

LiftCast.TV will produce the live stream that will be posted to USA Weightlifting's live channel here. LiftCast.TV produced the stream of the 2017 Baltimore Open which was streamed live on USAWeightlifting.org in January.

“As a Masters weightlifter myself, I felt it apropos to leverage my knowledge of technology, business experience, and love of the sport to do what I could to bring not only the sport of Weightlifting more into the mainstream light but also help feature the Masters athletes and their accomplishments as many of us just fell in love with the sport of weightlifting later in life,” Joe Hancuff, owner of LiftCast.TV said. 

USA Weightlifting worked with the Masters Committee and LiftCast.TV to secure a live stream of this year's National Masters Championships.
