Hafthor Bjornsson, runner-up in the World’s Strongest Man competition, winner of a slew of strongman competitions, and player of Game of Thrones character The Mountain Ser Gregor Clegane has been beaten in an arm wrestling match.
The 25 year-old Icelandic giant (2.06m and 180kg) was challenged and soundly defeated by by Devon Larratt – a man just over half his size (102kg).
To be fair, the Canadian, Larratt, is an arm wrestling legend. He won the left hand championship of the World Arm-Wrestling League in 2014.
But no one was prepared for the apparent ease he had in dominating Bjornsson.
Bjornsson wasn’t playing around. He threw all his considerable bodyweight into defeating Larratt, who virtually toyed with the big man before pinning him.
In their second match Larratt even had the cheek to give Bjornsson advice, before again winning the contest!
