Watch The Mountain from GOT break a 1000 year old weightlifting record


the mountain game of thrones

Hafthór Björnsson, better known as the dude who plays The Mountain on Game Of Thrones is actually every bit as strong and badass as the character in the much adored series. A thousand years after the stories of a Viking by the name of Orm Storolfson who carried the mast of the viking ship Ormen Lange on his own shoulders had first been uttered, The Mountain went on to carry a 640 kg log for five steps before dropping it on his way to winning his second World’s Strongest Viking championship.

This guy is just scary strong… I mean it’s a 640kg log on his shoulders! I’d probably get squished if tried 100kgs. DAMN.

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...
