Last weekend, Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Chris Schlack won an impressive trophy when he was crowned “Wall Street’s Best Athlete” after beating the competition in The Decathlon, a one day athletic competition that started last year to benefit LiveStrong, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Schlack powered through a 400 meter dash, a football throw, and pull ups, and more during the event to raise money for cancer research on Sunday.
Everyone that competed in this competition deserves a high five, but we’re going to focus on some of the top athletes.
Jason Tufo came in second and is as brainy as he is brawny: he holds a computer science degree from Stanford, a law degree from Cornell and a master's degree in computational finance from Carnegie Mellon.
First place winner, Chris Schlack, is a personal trainer and kick boxing teacher, when he's not working as an alternative investments analyst at Merrill Lynch.
Schlack holds a finance degree from Seton Hall.
