The RBC Decathlon at St. John’s featured hundreds of fit Wall Streeters battling for bragging rights, while helping raise money for cancer.


The sixth annual RBC Decathlon was held at St. John’s University on Sunday and raised $1.4 million for cancer research.

The contest, which tests the physical fitness of Wall Street’s workers, fielded hundreds of competitors from the financial industry for the 10-event competition on DaSilva Memorial Field.

Mark Rubin of Barclays won the male side for the third consecutive year, while Jennifer Lidel of TradeLink Securities finished first in the female section.

Competitors were tested in a 400-meter run, football throw, pull-ups, 40-yard dash, dips, 500-meter row, vertical jump, 20-yard shuttle, bench press and an 800-meter run.

The money raised for the event will be donated to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
