The Mountain, aka Thor Björnsson cannot be stopped! Not least in the first episode of the Guinness World Records Italian Show. In it, the Game of Thrones star was pitted against none other than four-time World Strongest Man title winner Zydrunas Savickas. The challenge was to see who could lift two fridges, with a combined weight of 450 kg (992 pounds, including the frame) over a distance of 20 meters in the fastest time.
