There's no denying it, JPMorgan's intern class has been fun to watch this summer.

1. First we had the intern who sent out an email advocating the use of fake IDs.

2. Then there was the gorgeous super model intern working in the London office.

3. And recently the interns who stuffed their faces with White Castle burgers.

Now we have learned about an intern at the bank who is preparing for the Olympic trials to compete in London in 2012.

Brandon Heroux is a summer analyst with JPMorgan . He is also qualified in the javelin throw for both the US and Canadian Olympic trials.

Heroux, who obtained his dual citizenship this past year via his father, will have to decide which country he will try to represent.

"Javelin throwing in the U.S. has become a lot more popular. The talent pool is definitely getting a lot bigger," Heroux is quoted as saying in the Daily Press. "Canada has a fewer number of prominent throwers. (There's a) better chance at getting to the next level."

Heroux set a personal record of 73.09 meters at the 2011 Penn Relays, the oldest and largest track and field competition in the U.S.

After this summer, Heroux will return to William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he will be a senior majoring in finance with a concentration in marketing.

Check out this video of Heroux setting his personal record.
