‘Game of Thrones’ Star Crowned Europe’s Strongest Man
Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson has been crowned Europe’s Strongest Man after winning the annual contest in England last week.
The strongman-turned-actor, known for playing Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane in the hit fantasy series, iced out the competition in Leeds after performing a series of strength-testing challenges.
The 400-pound Iceland native was the only participant to complete the atlas stone challenge, in which one must lift a heavy concrete sphere onto a large barrel.
After he completed the task, Bjornsson ripped off his shirt and exclaimed, “I am the future of strength. I am the King of the Stones!”
Here are some pics he posted throughout the competition:
Personally, I still haven’t forgiven this man for stripping the world of Oberyn Martell, but congrats on your victory..I guess.
