The Mountain From Game Of Thrones Just Broke Another Strongman Record

Hafthor Bjornsson has pulled off an incredible feat that no human being has ever done before.

Standing at 206cm tall and weighing 193kg, The Mountain/Hulk/World's Strongest Man -- whatever you want to call him -- has been wowing the world with his remarkable strength for years.

But he's just out-done himself at the Arnold Strongman Classic.

The 30-year-old Icelandic strongman just lifted a mind-boggling 474kg in the elephant bar deadlift -- that's heavier than a grand piano or a horse. Such an amount has never been lifted before in this event.

In just about the only additional fact that could make this feat more impressive, he beat his own previous record of 472kg

This is how it went down:

"Pretty casual," he says.

He had his sight set on 501kg -- which would have earned him an extra $50,000 prize -- but missed the mark.

Obviously, he went on to win the overall competition -- and AU$101,000 --  thanking his wife and best friends for their support.

It wasn't his only huge achievement of the competition. He also set another world record in the 'weight over bar' event -- a pretty self-explanatory event really, basically where you throw a heavy weight over a bar.

Kind of like pole vault, but throwing a 23-kilo weight instead of using a long stick to get over the bar.

The strongman competition also included an event where you have to carry around a huge rock, if you're into that.

If you want to see more of the big guy, he's about to appear in the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones as Gregor Clegane.

The new series premieres on Monday, April 15.
