From Mount Isa to world champion
by Matt Nichols, The North West Star
NOT many people know John White was born in Mount Isa.
In fact, most people in Mount Isa don't even know who John White is.
As arguably one of the greatest squash players to ever take to the squash courts, the people here should definitely know about one of the town's sporting "legends".
White was in fact born and raised in Mount Isa.
Speaking to The North West Star from Pennsylvania in the United States yesterday, White still fondly remembers his time in the copper city.
