We are big fans of Hafþór Björnsson here at Muscle & Fitness, and he has had one hell of a year. As well as turning in a powerful performance in Game of Thrones as Gregor Clegane, which included that epic showdown with Oberyn, he also placed a very close second to Zydrunas Savickas in the 2014 World Strongest Man contest.

He went one better and took the top spot in Europe’s Strongest Man 2014 in Leeds, England, over the weekend. Congrats, Thor, for a great appearance on the small screen and for a riveting strongman performance. Check out some highlights from the 6’9″ 420-pound Icelander’s win, including an epic t-shirt rip that would make the Hulk proud and one of the all-time great post-win quotes: “I am the future of strength, as I am King of the Stones.”
