America Vies To Be Beard Capital Of World

LAKE TAHOE, Nev. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man is on a hairy mission with his legion of furry followers.

Phil Olsen has a dream, a dream that has grown like the beard upon his face: To make the United States a world power in the international sport of facial hair growing.

So, he’s taking his team of bearded and mustachioed men, known as Beard Team USA, to Anchorage, Alaska, this Saturday (May 23) to partake in the World Beard and Moustache Championships.

The team is competing in 18 categories including “wild west moustaches,” “musketeer partial beard,” and “freestyle full beard,” – where growers tease and sculpt their beard into elaborate designs.

Olsen is sure Team USA will represent and finally get the respect they deserve.

He says, “The dominating power has always been Germany, but we’re gonna unseat them this time.”

Olsen assures that growing a beard is easy, since you just “do nothing.” However, conditioning and combing top- notch face fur is what sets champions apart from the chumps.
