Frank Hussey, a schoolboy sensation from New York City's Stuyvesant High School, ran the third leg in the American 4×100 m relay team in Paris Olympics, which won the gold medal in a new world record of 41.0.
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. After that he worked as a salesman, taught in the New York State Prison System, and served as an official at athletics events in his free time.
