Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson sets deadlift record


After lifting the weight of 1104.5 pounds (501 kilograms) on Saturday, the actor has now raised the ground more than anyone in the history of the sport.

He posted a video of the exploit later today.

” I have no words. What an amazing day I will remember for the rest of my life, “Björnsson wrote in an Instagram post after the elevator.

“I said I was coming for this and once I have decided on something, I am a dog with a bone. I want to give a huge cry to my family, my friends, my coaches, my fans, my sponsors and my enemies, who have all helped make this lifting possible. ”

In 2018, Björnsson won the world’s strongest man competition. He has placed at least third in the competition every year since 2012. In the past three years, he has also won the Arnold Strongman Classic title.

For the past month, he has shared his training regiment leading to the record elevator on his YouTube channel, where he also posts other training videos.
