Because the WMG is in April 2017 in New Zealand, and normally the World Masters Championship is held within the WMG weightlifting there are no planned International Masters championships other than the Continental Masters events. The European Masters Championship is normally in May but with the WMG in April this is not possible.
The European Masters Committee (EMC) are keen to organise the European Masters Championship later in the year and combine it with an “International Open Masters” open to all countries world-wide. Eleiko will support a big Masters event in Halmstad.
Recently their factory and warehouse storage facilities were badly damaged by fire and they are in the process of moving to a new site where their new facility will include everything they had previously. In addition they are building a new Sports Hall and restaurant which will be open and available in May 2017, the championship dates will be August 11th-19th. The venue will have 5/6 warm up platforms and 10/12 training platforms and all the best lifter awards will be donated by Eleiko.
The events will take place simultaneously in Mantra on View Hotel, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Australia.
Early bird registrations close June 27, 2017 (see their website for registration info)
