While many eyes were on Usain Bolt's return to the track at the London Diamond League on Friday, Italian high jumper Gianmarco Tamberi caught some attention for his half-beard in the high jump competition.
Tamberi first debuted the half-beard and half-shaven look at the 2015 European Indoor Championships in March as he believes the style is a good luck charm. It worked on July 1 as he set the Italian national record in the high jump with a clearance of 2.34 meters.
The Italian finished second in the men's high jump competition in London, but first in facial hair fashion.
