In a development that should come as a surprise to no one, "Game of Thrones" actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson was named the World's Strongest Man at a competition in the Philippines over the weekend. You probably know him better as "The Mountain," the absurdly tall and even-more-absurdly strong guard of Cersei Lannister who can quite literally crush people's skulls with his bear hands.
This is Björnsson's seventh time entering this competition. After this weekend's win, the 29-year-old athlete officially became the first person ever to win the World's Strongest Man, Europe's Strongest Man and the Arnold Strongman Classic competition in the same year.
It's fitting that Björnsson finally has the title to match his "Game of Thrones" character's reputation, who is known as one of the strongest fighters in the Seven Kingdoms. You may remember a particularly gruesome scene where he fights Prince Oberyn to the death.
The entire World's Strongest Man competition will air on CBS starting June 10.
