To be sure, LA’s haul of six medals at the Just for Men National Beard and Moustache Championships was impressive.
But Maui’s haul of four medals was crushing!
Giant city Los Angeles has a metro area with a population of over 18 million. But tiny island Maui’s population is 144,444, according to the 2010 US Census. In other words, one Mauian for every 36,111 won a medal, while only one Angelino in over 3 million podiumed.
Maui medalists (left to right in photo above) were Ross Steidel, (Hungarian Moustache – silver), Nick Wilson (Musketeer – silver), Josh Aguinaldo (Full Beard Styled Moustache – silver), and Brooke Mahnken (Freestyle Moustache – silver).
Way to go LA! Aloha, Maui!
