Overheard at the World’s Strongest Man Competition

The Mountain” now is also the World’s Strongest Man. “Game of Thrones” actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson took part in the 2018 World’s Strongest Man competition in the Philippines and won. The 6-foot-9, 397-pound athlete and actor shared a photo of himself standing on the podium on social media over the weekend with the message, “Want to thank all of my family, friends and fans for supporting me along the way.” The contest is a series of feats of strength. In one of the events, called the Atlas Stones, “The Mountain” placed four out of five 360-pound stones onto a platform in 41 seconds. His future plans include going to Hawaii to plug up that volcano.
