English athlete and schoolteacher John Sheldrick, who comes from Newmarket, Suffolk, had no intention of staying in Australia when he arrived for the Perth Commonwealth Games last November. But he was so impressed with the city, the people and the climate, that he submitted his resignation to his English school, by mail, and accepted a post with a leading Perth school. Local athlete Anthea Robertson, 17, of Dalkeith, WA, is helped by Jiohn Sheldrick to get a good hold of the discus at the Applecross-Melville Athletic Club in Perth
