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.
