Whether it be attending their gardenias or curating their supercar collections, actors tend to do stuff outside of acting. Like Game of Thrones‘ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who digs entering competitions of strength.

It will likely come as no surprise to fans that Ser Gregor Clegane – known as “The Mountain That Rides” – is rather adept at being strong. He’d already nabbed titles at the 2018 Arnold Strongman Competition (lifting 1,041 pounds – or around 472 kilograms) and Europe’s Strongest Man comp (for the fourth time), but he was aiming for another crown.

Despite coming a measly second in the bus-pulling (!) category, he was overall points winner at this year’s World’s Strongest Man event in Manila over the past weekend, making him the first ever bloke to complete the treble.

It was a long-held aim for the massive Björnsson, who, at a height of 206cm and weight of around 200kg, had finished runner-up the past two years – and it took Australian strength coach Sebastian Oreb to help him do it!

Meanwhile, The Mountain will return in the much-anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. Hopefully he’ll have more to do than just wandering around – the guy’s a one-man army!
