Hafthor Björnsson, also known as Thor or The Mountain or this incredibly strong man from Game of Thrones has just broken the world deadlift record, more than anyone else in history. The strong man and actor could do 501 pounds or an amazing 1,104 pounds deadlifts. The lift was two pounds more than the previous world record set by Björnsson's rival Eddie Hall in 2016.
Thor's warm-up was an occasional deadlift of £ 925, followed by a deadlift of £ 1,025. On his third attempt, Björnsson was aiming for the goal of £ 1,104. Commentators pointed out that Thor had never put on so much weight even while training. But Thor could lift the weight of half a ton with little effort.
"I am speechless," said Björnsson in an interview after breaking the record. "I'm so happy and thankful that I got the opportunity to do it, despite all the shit the world is going through."
He added, "Not only did I pull that incredible weight, I just feel great about it. I stand here, tall, with no injuries."
Soon after the elevator, fans raved on social media to share their collective awe and unbelief about the elevator.
Björnsson's historic elevator should be tried in a world Ultimate Strongman competition, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, the competition was put into a livestream with various Strongman record attempts The main attraction of the livestream competition was Thors Lift, who was tried only with the necessary support and crew present, and fans quickly commented on the fact that a global pandemic couldn't even stop Thor.
But none The fan comment would be complete without mentioning how Björnsson used his post-lift interview to describe the former Re Cord holder Eddie Hall to call for a literal boxing match.
Don't you want to take a shower or nap first, Thor?
