The World Weightlifting Championships begin today in Anaheim, Ca., and with many countries banned this year due to doping, the US has a shot at the podium in a few weight classes. 

ESPN 3 will be streaming the event in the US, which says a lot for the growth of the sport in this country. The competition goes through the weekend and like most meets, starts with the lightest bodyweight categories and moves up as it progresses.

Check out the schedule, links to the live stream and more information here.
