Giese switched categories from English Moustache, where he took gold in Anchorage. Alaska’s Bob Gengler, who podiumed in Anchorage in Full Beard Styled Moustache, also switched to Fu Manchu and earned third just behind Sedman the Great.

Giese is the president of the Berlin Beard Club, which won three golds at the Norway games.
