Biography

Harry Kaskey won both the US and Canadian All-around in 1923, his only major victories. He also had all-around second places in the 1922 International Silver Cup and the 1924 New Jersey State Championships. After competing in the 1924 Olympics, Kaskey was banned from amateur competition, because it was claimed he had taken excessive expense money, although he was reinstated in 1925. But he then stopped competing, only to make a brief comeback in 1932.

Personal Bests: 500 – 46.4 (1924); 1500 – 2:29.8 (1924); 10000 – 18:57.0 (?).
