For those who watch Game of Thrones.........
« on: May 19, 2018, 06:55:30 PM »
For those who watch the HBO series, there's some cool news regarding one of the actors in the series.

Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, who plays Gregor "The Mountain" Cleagne, is a professional strongman. Two weeks ago he won the World's Strongest Man competition organized by IMG, which is the oldest and most prestigious strongman competition in the world.

But that's not all. Earlier in March, he won the Arnold Strongman Classic. Yes, the event Mark Henry won in its first iteration. It's now behind only World's Strongest Man in prestige, because while WSM requires a blend of strength and athleticism, the Arnold Strongman Classic is all about raw power. And then Bjornsson also won the Europe's Strongest Man competition. He's not the first to win all three, but he is the first to win all three in a single year.

So there you go. The Mountain is now officially the World's Strongest Man. He joins Jon Pall Sigmardsson and the awesomely-named Magnus Ver Magnusson (You can translate that as "Greatness, Son of Greatness" or "Big Man, Son of Big Man". Awesome either way) as winners hailing from Iceland.

Don't let this signature distract you from the fact that Dele Alli has 29 more PL goals than Jack Wilshere.
