The Mountain Now Holds Some Ridiculous World Records

posted by Scott Sands - 

The Mountain did some amazing things in Columbus last weekend. The Game of Thrones actor, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, took home the championship at the Arnold Classic and set two new world records in the process. 

First, he threw a 56-pound weight over a 20-foot bar, besting his previous mark.

Very happy with my new WR! 56lb weight over 20 foot bar. Boom! 💥

And if that wasn't enough, Bjornsson set a new world deadlift record by lifting more than half a ton!
