As the ever-growing Melbourne-founded charity go about their fantastic work raising awareness and vital funding, Commentary Box Sports thought it necessary to look at the sportsmen who have worn the mo best over the years.

Living above one of the biggest runaway mouths in sport is a very ginger, furry faux-pas.
The mo was always kept impeccably neat and comparably subtle on this famous face. It’s a tough gig playing sidekick to that fro.
With Goochie’s gardening skills, it’s no wonder he cultivated this beauty. The sheer weight of it must have kept him on the front foot.
Spitz defied all streamline theories to win seven gold medals in the pool at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich with this porno-esque ‘tache.
