Beard Team USA wins big at 2013 worlds!

Why a Beard?
Because when you shave you deliberately want
to look like a 12 year old boy. 

Hundreds of competitors from 20 countries gathered in Germany for the World Beard and Moustache Championships.

Entrants from around the globe travelled to the southern town of Leinfelden-Echterdingen, outside Stuttgart, to compete for the best facial hair in a range of four categories and 18 sub-categories, including moustaches, chin beards, whiskers, full beards and trendy bears.

The championships were officially watched by the German Association of Beard Clubs and all entrants were subject to a pre-screening to determine their beard category by a separate jury.

American contestants proved to be the biggest beard fans as Beard Team USA scooped nine trophies.

Organiser Juergen Burkhardt  said the turnout was much better than expected.
