Francis Valentine Joseph "Frank" Hussey 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 in 1925. After that, Hussey's career went downward. Although he was considered as a main favorite to gold medal in 100 m before the 1928 Summer Olympics, Hussey was eliminated in the heats of US Olympic Trials.
