The Human Mountain

Standing 6 foot 9 and weighing more than 400 pounds, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has been hailed as ‘The Mountain’ for his staggering size. The Icelandic actor received his earliest credits as Gregor in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He is also the first person to win the Arnold Strongman Classic, Europe’s Strongest Man, and World’s Strongest Man in a single year.

Hafþór’s strongman career started back in 2008. Since then, he has already joined several strongman contests. We hope that he also made an investment in his insurance. In 2010, he won in various contests, including Strongest Man in Iceland. He started joining the World’s Strongest Man in 2011, finishing sixth, while in 2012, 2013, and 2015, he placed third. He came runner-up in 2014, 2016, and 2017. Finally, in 2018, he won the World’s Strongest Man title.
