BofA banker goes for gold

Paralympic Winter Games Gold Medal - Vancouver 2010

When Taylor Lipsett’s not working long hours for his employer, Bank of America, he’s usually on the ice.

MarketWatch reports that Lipsett spends most days working for Bank of America's U.S. Trust unit in Dallas, but he’s often up long before for circuit training and out much later for skating practice. That’s because Lipsett, 27, is training for Sochi.

Lipsett plays left wing on the U.S. ice sled hockey team, which is much like its upright cousin except that players sit in double-blade 'sleds' or 'sledges' and use two sticks instead of one. The sport is part of the Paralympics.

Lipsett has brittle bone disease, formally called osteogenesis imperfecta, which keeps him in a wheelchair. Teammates have lost legs in car accidents and while serving in the military.
