Strongman-slash-Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson wins the title of Iceland's Strongest Man for the 4th consecutive year

Strongman and Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has won the title of Iceland’s Strongest Man for the 4th consecutive year, News Of Iceland reports.

Páll Logason took second place, Ari Gunnarsson third and Úlfur Orri Péturson came fourth.

Hafþór Júlíus’ lead in the competition was so large that he did not perform the final competition challenge.

Hafþór Júlíus also set a new Guinness World Record by carrying two fridges weighing 450 kilos or 992 pounds for 20 metres in the fastest time ever recorded.

He has now set off for Italy and the Netherlands to compete in other strongman competitions.

What a mountain of a man, eh?
