Slovenia's Filip Flisar didn’t medal in freestyle ski cross on Thursday, but he was a winner in the hearts of everyone who was lucky enough to gaze upon his amazing mustache.

Flisar boasts a handlebar mustache that curls into a circle on either end. It looks like Flisar belongs on an old circus poster for a strongman (sans the one-piece).
Flisar’s mustache was accentuated by his skiing helmet, which featured a host of different mustaches. From the neck up, Flisar was the toast of Sochi.
He even wowed social media for awhile:

Flisar is just one of many Olympians boasting some amazing facial hair, including Australia's skicrosser Anton Grimus and France's freestyle skier Jonas Devouassoux. Let's hope this trend continues into the next Olympic Games.
