Hafthor "The Mountain" Bjornsson

Rogue athlete Hafþór (Hafthor) Bjornsson is a three-time defending “Europe’s Strongest Man” and a six-time Top-3 finisher in World’s Strongest Man competition. The 6-foot-9 native of Reykjavik, Iceland, was a standout basketball player before a knee injury sent him on a new path at the age of 20. Under the wing of the legendary Magnus ver Magnusson, Bjornsson won a string of regional Strongman events in 2010, then began his current seven-year run as Iceland’s Strongest Man in 2011. He’s also been invited to compete in every Arnold Strongman Classic since 2012, with a career-best second place finish in 2017.

Hafþór’s profile has transcended his sport in recent years. In 2014, he began portraying “The Mountain” in a certain popular HBO show. And in 2015, he made headlines around the world by breaking a mythical, 1,000 year-old Strongman record—taking five strides while carrying a 32-foot long, 650 KG log during an event in Norway.
