World’s Strongest Man and ‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Nicknamed “The Mountain” Breaks World Record Lifting More than 1,100 Pounds!

The World’s Strongest Man, nicknamed “The Mountain” broke the world record today in the deadlift, pulling more than half a ton in the air.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, from Iceland, broke the world record today deadlifting 501KG or more than 1,100 pounds.  ‘Hafthor’ who is a former World’s Stongest Man winner, lifted more than any man has lifted before.

The massive athlete is 6’9″ and a former professional basketball player.  He also was on the hit series The Game of Thrones for five seasons.

Here he is breaking the world record.

He looks like a cartoon character he is so built.  My God the Vikings must have been frightening.
