‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Hafthor Bjornsson Wins Europe’s Strongest Man Contest for the Second Year in a Row

Former Iceland basketball player and strongman competitor Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson, known for playing the part of Gregor Clegane (a.k.a. “The Mountain”) on Game of Thrones, recently defended his Europe’s Strongest Man competition title for the second year in a row. Bjornsson also set a personal best during the contest on the deadlift by pulling up an amazing 991 pounds. That’s quite a lot of weight for a six-foot, nine-inch tall giant to lift.
