'The Mountain' from ‘Game Of Thrones’ is Uncomfortably Strong

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson shows off his brute strength at a WOW Stronger competition in Crossfit Reykjavik.

Everyone seems pretty strong until a much larger man enters the room. This is the case for both lifters who went ahead of 6-time Iceland Strongest Man, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. WOW Stronger is a CrossFit strongman competition that is built for brutes like 'The Mountain'.

The first two competitors power clean the weight with a little bit of a struggle, but of course the same doesn't go for Björnsson. He walks up to the bar, rips it to his chest then hurls the weight overhead while the crowd cheers.
