Balyasny Analyst Tapped For Gymnastics Hall Of Fame

Apr 17 2014 | 9:48am ET

A hedge fund analyst is going to the Hall of Fame for her pre-Wall Street life as an award-winning gymnast.

Lisa Wang, who works at Balyasny Asset Management in New York, was a three-time member of the U.S. rhythmic gymnastics team and won five gold medals in the Pan American Games. A three-time U.S. all-around champion, she’ll be inducted with five others into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame in August during a ceremony at the P&G Gymnastics Championships in Pittsburgh, Pa.

After retiring from competition, Yang attended Yale University. She joined Balyasny last summer following a post-graduate fellowship in Beijing.
