This weekend, Hafthor Bjornsson will defend his title as Europe’s Strongest Man. Oh, you’re not familiar with the name "Hafthor Bjornsson"? That's probably because you’re more accustomed to seeing him crush people’s skulls and tear men’s heads off as "The Mountain" in HBO’s Game of Thrones:

When he’s not busy separating heads from bodies, Bjornsson is eating and training. He’s been on the podium at World’s Strongest Man four years in a row, has won Europe’s Strongest Man for the past two years, and is looking particularly huge and strong going into the World Deadlift Championships and Europe’s Strongest Man this weekend.

At 6-9 and 420lbs, The Mountain lives up to his name in both size and strength. Remember his insane 981lb deadlift and celebration?

To win his third consecutive Europe’s Strongest Man title, The Mountain’s gonna need all his skull-crushing, shirt-ripping, iron-lifting skills because the competition this year is absolutely stacked.
