It turns out Hafthor Bjornsson’s role as “The Mountain” on Game of Thrones isn’t the only time he gets to display his extraordinary feats of strength. The 440-pound Icelandic giant is currently competing in Malaysia to earn the title of World’s Strongest Man.

Bjornsson is no newcomer when it comes to strength competitions. He finished second in the World’s Strongest Man competition last year and, according to his profile on strongman.org, he excels at truck pulling.
