GoT’s ‘The Mountain’ can deadlift 994 pounds (video)

Hafthor ‘Thor’ Bjornsson is no joke. The 6′ 9″, 421 pound giant, who plays Sir Gregor Clegane aka “the Mountain” on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ (you may have seen him last week digging his thumbs into Prince Oberyn’s eyes and crushing his skull like a tomato) is also an Icelandic strongman competitor.

Here’s a little video making the rounds of Bjornsson at the 2014 Arnold Strongman Classic in February deadlifting nearly 1,000 pounds.

Quite impressive, but here’s kicker – he came in fifth place in the competition!
