The second-fittest man on Wall Street

Jay Li calls his secret weapon the 'Bane' mask.

Bloomberg News reports that the 33-year-old equity analyst at Trafelet Brokaw owns a frustrating-yet-admirable claim to fame: He’s the second-fittest man on Wall Street.

Li isn’t especially happy about that title, one he’s earned the past two years in the annual Wall Street Decathlon - and one he’s aiming to retire at this year’s event, which takes place June 13-14 at St. John’s University in New York.

The Bane mask - Bane being the Batman villain - is Li’s ticket to the top, or so he hopes. Wearing it during his cardio routines intensifies his training by restricting airflow, a masochistic tactic intended to mimic high altitudes. 'The outcome is determined by what you’ve done - or not done', Li says. “On the day of the competition, I’m not holding anything back'.

In reality, there’s only one man Li cares about beating this weekend: Mark Rubin. The 29-year-old futures and options sales trader, who’s starting a new job at ICAP, has won the decathlon three years in a row.
