And the fittest athlete on Wall Street 2013 is....

Only the strong survive

Bloomberg News reports that Mark Rubin of Barclays won the RBC Decathlon for the second straight year and said defending his title as Wall Street’s best athlete was more challenging than his breakthrough victory. 

Evelyn Konrad of Standard & Poor's will get to experience that next year after winning the inaugural women’s title.

Rubin, a former Pennsylvania State University safety who spent time with several National Football League teams, finished atop a field of 170 financial industry workers in yesterday’s 10-event competition that raised more than $1.4m for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

'What makes the event so fun is the level of competition,' said the 27-year-old Rubin, who’s in his third year selling fixed-income futures at Barclays. 'You really can’t have an off event or an off race. You just have to try to be consistent and attack every event. Last year was hard and this year was even harder.'

Rubin finished with 7,630 points, almost 300 more than runner-up Jay Li of Trafelet & Co.
