Hafthor Bjornsson is a literal and figurative big star in Game of Thrones as his role of The Mountain. While many would be enticed with the notion of being a TV star, Thor is as focused on dominating strongman competitions as he has ever been. That was evident this weekend when Hafthor won Europe’s Strongest Man competition.
Bjornsson, who plays the hulking bodyguard Gregor Clegane in Game of Thrones became Europe’s Strongest Man after displaying his strength in a variety of feats. Bjornsson, the behemoth from Iceland, finished with 35.5 points and defeated Mateusz Kieliszkowski from Poland by four points.
Europe’s Strongest Man competition, which was held in Leeds, England, saw Thor dominating the axle deadlift where he completed 10 reps with 770 pounds.
This was The Mountain’s fifth Europe’s Strongest Man title, putting him one behind the all-time leader, Mariusz Pudzianowski.
It was only a month ago that The Mountain won the 2019 Arnold Strongman Classic, see all of the impressive videos HERE.
Hafthor Bjornsson set a new incredible deadlift world record. “Pretty casual new WR Elephant Bar Deadlift 474kg/1044.9lbs,” the strongman said on Instagram.
Thor isn’t always lifting heavy logs, here he is looking dapper AF with a fantastic jacket at the Game of Thrones red carpet premiere in New York City with his wife.
Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell, was also at the premiere and The Viper got his revenge on The Mountain.
