USA Swimming Joins WCSN to Offer Free Live Webcast of Nationals

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 3 USA Swimming, in conjunction with the World Championship Sports Network (WCSN), will offer a free live webcast of finals during the last three days of competition at the 2006 ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships.

Each night from Aug. 3-5, WCSN.com will offer a two-hour worldwide webcast with no restrictions from 5:30 p.m to 7:30 p.m. (PDT). Those that desire to watch the webcast need only register for free with their First and Last Name, e-mail address, date of birth and gender. Viewers will also have a chance to check out all of WCSN’s other content.

"We're thrilled to partner with USA Swimming to bring exclusive online and television coverage to such an important and prestigious swimming event," Carlos Silva, president and COO of WCSN, said. "We take great pride in being the one-stop destination for delivering international and Olympic sports events to our audience worldwide."

"In today's society, not everyone makes time to sit down for 'appointment viewing' of sporting events on TV," Chuck Wielgus, USA Swimming Executive Director said. "That's why it is vital that we adapt and deliver swimming content to reach our fans any way they want, as well as take the content to places where there are opportunities to expose new fans to the sport."

After the event, full on-demand video, including race-by-race video links, will be available. WCSN will distribute highlights, including World Record performances, to media outlets such as Google, Yahoo!, AOL, FoxSports.com, YouTube.com and more.
