NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - After a 1-year hiatus, The FRS Company returns as the official natural performance energy beverage of The Decathlon, a heralded athletic competition crowning "Wall Street's Best Athlete."

On October 22nd, professionals from many of the world's preeminent financial services firms including Deutsche Bank and Citi will converge at Columbia University's Wien Stadium to compete in 10 athletic events testing speed, power, endurance, and agility, while raising money to benefit Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the world's oldest and largest private cancer center.
