STANDING 205cm tall and weighing in at a staggering 180kg, the enormity of the man that is Hafthor Bjornsson is no secret.

Already known for his incredible feats of strength, the Game of Thrones star has once again shocked fans with a show of power that’s almost unimaginable to your everyday human.
Bjornsson tackled his own world record in the keg toss at the Giants Live strongman contest in Sweden on Saturday.
The 27-year-old managed to lob a 15kg beer keg over his head and clear the bar at a peak height of 7.05m, a feat described by Giants Live as “the equivalent of throwing a four-year-old over three buses stacked on top of each other.”

Bjornsson previously broke into the Guinness World Records in 2014 for the event, when he launched a 12.3kg keg to a height of 8.05m. Now the strongman has thrown an even heavier keg like it was a mere football, to a similarly shocking elevation.
Clearly happy with his performance, Bjornsson celebrated by picking up the stadium announcer and throwing him over his shoulder like a lightweight jacket.
The Icelander spoke after the event, claiming he could have sent the keg through the roof if he had another shot at it.
“It was easy! I could have broken the roof, it was amazing to do this in front of the great crowd. Bring on Europe’s Strongest Man,” he told Giants Live.
The former Icelandic professional basketballer has competed at the last five consecutive World’s Strongest Man competitions, with his best result achieved in 2014, when he came second to four-time title holder Zydrunas Savickas.
Bjornsson is also the current holder of the Europe’s Strongest Man title, and will look to take out his third consecutive victory at the championships in Leeds, UK in July 2016.
