Game of Thrones is one of the best shows on television, and seemingly everyone involved is recieving accolades and starring in big budget movies left and right. One person, however, may be more impressive than his alter ego on the show.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson currently plays the Mountain on GOT, a character that is legendary for his bad assery and crushing peoples heads with the ease of a child popping a water balloon. But in real life Björnsson is currently Europe’s Strongest Man. This is the second time he has won the competition, but he has won or placed well in many other competitions also.

After watching the video below, it’s hard not to be impressed with his victory. He owns every competition he competes in, with other competitors visibly lagging behind or struggling to keep up. Meanwhile, he just keeps on powering through. It’s awesome, and it is a great trophy to have in his case next to the one he received for breaking the 1,000 year old Viking weightlifting record.

Enjoy the video below, and maybe, just maybe, consider hitting the gym.
