The Mountain From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Broke A 1,000-Year-Old Weightlifting Record
Terrifying mobile sculpture Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known as the Mountain from
, best known as TV’s most famous eye-squisher, won Europe’s Strongest Man Contest in 2014. But he’s also the strongest man…in a millennium. During this weekend’s World’s Strongest Viking competition, Björnsson “[broke] a record that has been part of history for 1,000 years,” for as they foretold in the ancient scrolls, I KILLED THE RECORD. I SMASHED ITS HEAD IN.
“The record has been described in the Icelandic Sagas,” said Ilkka Kinnunen who reported on the event for Iron Mind. “The legend of the Icelander Ormur Stórólfsson goes that he walked three steps with a monster wooden log which weighed over 650 kg and was 10 m long. It took 50 mere mortals to help him place it on his back. After he took his third step, his back broke under the enormous pressure and he was never the same after that.” (Via)
The man they call Thor carried the same monster log for five steps. Björnsson will next compete in World’s Strongest Man, so good luck, mere mortals foolish enough to challenge this guy.
The legend of the Icelander Orm Storulfsson says that he walked three steps with this MONSTER WOODEN LOG which weighs over 600kg's/1320lbs! It took 50 mere mortals to help him placing it on his back! After he took his third step his back broke under the enormous pressure and he was never the same after that! Well today my friends I made history!! As well as winning the title of The World's Strongest Viking for the second time in a row I carried this MONSTER LOG 5 steps! My back held up fine!! As I'm on my way to my ultimate goal to win The World's Strongest Man! NOTHING CAN STOP ME!! NOTHING CAN BREAK ME!!

It took 50 guys to pick up a 1300 lb log? Nah.
If I was that strong, I’d look for ancient myths to squash too.
“Today on Mythic Busters, we will find out if a man can truly defeat a minotaur bare handed, then we will test if it’s possible to kill 1,000 philistines with an ass jaw, finally we shall drive around Berkeley and laugh at vegans and their puny arm strength.”
Telegraph Avenue would be the place to go for Philistine stand-ins.
Also smashed on a daily basis by the same man, world record for biggest shit taken. Poor toilet.
1 Couric is 2.5 pounds, so… 8, just shy of Randy’s initial record breaker of 8.6 Courics, and nowhere near the final record 100 Courics…
@BalzanFeiss I believe it is roughly three Courics but “Advanced Fecal Analysis” was the reason I dropped out of med school and became a dentist so I’m not positive…
What’s great for a snack, and fits on your back?
But what we really want to know is: is he single, and is he into American women?
Big, strong, bear of a man…with a baby penis.
We just updated the post with video. My back hurts.
Alright, that’s super impressive, and I could never do it with even 1/10th of the weight. but how much did he really pick it up? Like half an inch and then just dragged it along the rail?
whateves , I carried TWO water coolers today with a sleeve of plastic cups under my arm* before lunch**
*I ended up crushing most of the cups **I was on like 3 Adderalls
Anyone who would try to put 1300 lbs on their body is completely insane.
impressive, but id like to see him do that without a back brace, since, you know, i would assume they did not have back braces 1000 years ago
I’d like to see him do it without the side plants being so damn high. He didn’t lift it more than what look like to be 1/2 inch, and with that if the log leaned at all it was and the side bench and he wasn’t actually lifting it. And if you look at his left side, you can see where he was sliding it on the wood not lifting it because you can see the white stuff being scrapped off and falling off…. Yeah this guy is more of a man and stronger then i could ever thing about being, but he did not break any record. He didn’t even lift the log, he just slid it on the side benches for 5 step…
He’s just a light weight. Here’s a heavy weight. [www.theglobeandmail.com]
Hit the link above and it takes you to the story of Gregg Ernst that lifted over 5000 lbs. :)
This is bullshit from every angle: “Ancient Record” – Bullshit
“50 Mortal Men” – That’s a large bag of dog food per person…Bullshit
“5 Steps” – You mean he scooted it a few times – Bullshit
This guys actual accomplishments are too impressive for THIS BS to be what gets the coverage.
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is now OFFICIALLY the only person who can ever legitimately respond with “Bro, do you even lift?”
That guy Would make perfect 40k Space Marine.
Worlds strongest Viking competition and he ended with the Viking Quest “VICTORY!” chant at the end. Johnny Drama wannabe…
Still waiting for Dethklok to sign him as a bouncer. Or whatever he wants to be. It’s cool.
