Slovenia's Filip Flisar didn't medal in freestyle ski cross event on Thursday, but he was still the talk of the slopes at the Sochi Olympics thanks to his epic mustache.

The word of the mustache -- which is long and curled upward on both sides-- quickly spread on social media Thursday morning.

Fans admired Flisar's freeski cross skills, but they mostly wondered whether the mustache might be the best looking one in all of Sochi.

The Olympian not only has a handlebar mustache, he also sported many more different ones on his helmet.

But Flisar isn't the only Olympic athlete with impressive facial hair. France's freesytle skier Jonas Devouassoux has quite a luxurious beard. And Australian ski cross racer Anton Grimus sports a black, bushy beard and is cheered on by fans holding up signs that read "Fear the Beard."

Take a look at what fans had to say about Flisar's 'stache on social media:
