Francis Valentine Joseph "Frank" Hussey-He was an American athlete, winner of gold medal in 4x100 m relay at the 1924 Summer Olympics. Frank Hussey, a schoolboy sensation from New York City's Stuyvesant High School, ran the third leg in the American 4x100 m relay team in Paris Olympics, which won the gold medal in a new world record of 41.0. After returning from Paris, he entered Boston College, and as a freshman became the leading Collegiate runner in America. He won the AAU championships in 100 yd (91 m) in 1925. After that, Hussey's career went downward. Although he was considered as a main favourite to gold medal in 100 m before the 1928 Summer Olympics, Hussey was eliminated in the heats of US Olympic Trials. He died in 1974.
