While some folks are spending their time in self-isolation and quarantine learning a new craft, practicing their baking skills, or just catching up a backlog of TV, Hafthor Bjornsson, who played Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on Game of Thrones for several seasons (most of them as a zombie), decided to shatter a world record for weightlifting by hoisting 1,104 pounds (501 kg) this weekend.
The 31-year-old native Icelander Bjornsson, who became the World’s Strongest Man in 2018, achieved this feet on Saturday at Thor’s Power Gym.
Bjornsson posted the video to his Instagram account, along with the message “I have no words. What an amazing day, one I will remember for the rest of my life. I said I was coming for it and once I set my mind on something I’m a dog with a bone.”
