Game of Thrones “The Mountain” smashes deadlift world record (video)

He lifted 501 kg

Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (aka The Mountain) has broken the world deadlift record at an event held in Iceland.

Incredible footage shows the 31-year-old actor lifting a whopping 1,104 pounds (501 kg) off the ground inside Thor’s Power Gym in Reykjavík on Saturday.

Björnsson – who is best known for playing Ser Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane on the hit HBO series – has now smashed a record previously set by Briton Eddie Hall.

Back in 2016, Hall made international headlines after he lifted 1,102 pounds (500 kg).
