Hafthor Bjornsson and Kelsey Henson Transparent Labs

 

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, known to some as “The Mountain” from Game Of Thrones,  is the newest member of the Transparent Labs family. While some may think of Game of Thrones when they hear Björnsson’s name, it’s his dominance in the Strongman world that sets him apart.

However, Hafþór did not get his athletic start as a strongman, it was basketball that was his first love. In 2006 he was even a member of the Icelandic National Team and played centre. Due to a recurring ankle injury he was forced to leave the pro-ball career behind.

In 2008, Hafþór had found his new passion, strength training. It didn’t take long for him to work his way to the top and by 2010 he was winning competitions. His most recent win being at the 2020 Arnold Strongman Classic.

During this year's Arnold, Hafþór earned himself a spot in the top three in four out of six events. He shined in the Elephant Deadlift, pulling an impressive 1,026 pounds (465kg). The 2020 Arnold is Hafþór’s tenth consecutive year in the competition; he came out victorious in 2019 and 2018 as well.

Hafþór has also won the title of World’s Strongest Man and World’s Ultimate Strongman, these along with The Arnold Strongman Classic win has made him the first athlete to earn first place in all three majors competitions.
