‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones just broke world record for heaviest deadlift in history

  • Rob Swan

Games of Thrones star Hafthor Julius Bjornsson has broken the world record for the heaviest deadlift in history after successfully lifting an astonishing 501kg (1,105 pounds).

The 31-year-old, who played ‘The Mountain’ in the HBO show, broke the record at his gym in Iceland.

Bjornsson broke the previous record held by Britain’s Eddie Hall, who became the first man to lift 500kg in 2016.

‘Thor’ made it look easy following two successful warm-up lifts of 420kg and 460kg.

He broke the record by 1kg - but that’s still enough to earn him a place in the record books.

Watch the lift here…

Absolute scenes!

After lifting 501kgs - which is a heavier weight than a polar bear - Bjornsson was quoted by The Sun as telling reporters: "I'm absolutely speechless.”


He added: "I could have done more, but what's the point?"

It seems Thor now has his sights set on a fight with Hall...

Now that would be epic.
