Aerodynamics of beards


I'm sure Tyson Gay knows what he's doing, but if I were him I don't think I'd chance racing with a beard due to the possibility of excessive wind resistance. At the same time, should he break the 100 meter world record, perhaps there's an added virtue to doing it despite the beard--were it so, the world would ask, what other obstacles could he overcome? Lead in his shoes?
