Ex-Rams Safety Rubin of Barclays Crowned Wall Street’s Top Jock

Mark Rubin decided to pursue a second passion after a brief stint in the National Football League and is now in his second year selling fixed income futures at Barclays Plc. He’s also Wall Street’s best athlete.

Rubin, 26, claimed the title yesterday by winning the fourth annual Wall Street Decathlon, a charity event that raised more than $1.2 million for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Rubin finished atop a field of more than 120 traders, bankers and financial advisers in the 10-event competition at Columbia University’s Wien Stadium on the northern tip of Manhattan.
