An event like this has never been to Houston. The IWF World Championships are coming to Houston and the George R. Brown Convention Center on November 20, 2015. Athletes from all over the world will be competing to try to book their tickets to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. During a brief trip to Houston we were able to catch up with Lilla Rozgonyi, IWF Director of Communications & Marketing, about the championships and everything you need to know about it.
