Evan Jager sporting a goatee for his steeplechase prelim which he won to advance to Tuesday's final.
Evan said the goatee was an accident and he prefers the clean shaven look.
"It's not a good luck. I'm not trying to make this a good luck. I actually honestly forgot to shave until I looked at myself in the mirror like 15 minutes before I was supposed to leave and I was like 'Shit. Whatever- I'm going to look like this. It's no big deal, I'll shave for the final.'
I love the clean shaven feel and look for big races. I'm not trying to do anything. I don't think it looks good. Thank you for pointing that out," he said.
