WAMI President James McMahon's locally renowned mustache now has official claim as one of the best in the country.

McMahon won second place in this year's National Beard and Moustache Championships, held Sunday, Nov. 11, in Las Vegas.

The third annual championships feature six mustache categories, including best "natural" and best "Dali" (as in the artist Salvador Dali). McMahon took silver in the "imperial" category.

McMahon competes as part of Beard Team USA, which represents the United States at international beard and moustache competitions and promotes the appreciation of facial hair nationwide.

Full results from the championship are posted online.
