Hafthor Bjornsson has faced many challenges during his career. From strongman to acting to boxing, The Mountain has found success in everything he does. Could bodybuilding be next on the list?
Bjornsson currently holds the all-time deadlift record at 501kg. He is a former World Strongest Man Champion and one of the greatest strongmen of all time. To date, he is the only man to have won the WSM, Europe’s Strongest Man and the Arnold Strongman Classic. His monstrous physique earned him a role in Game of thrones.
When he decided to take a break from the strongman, Hafthor Bjornsson began training as a boxer. He lined up a fight with fellow strongman Eddie Hall, which was initially canceled due to Hall’s injury. When the two finally entered the ring together, Bjornsson was named the winner via unanimous decision. Now he continues to practice in the ring while waiting for his next opponent.
