The Mountain, Hafthor Bjornsson, has won Iceland’s Strongest Man competition for the fifth time in a row.

The Viking giant (206 cm tall and 190 kg) was never really challenged in a gruelling day of lifting, pushing, and throwing.

Bjornsson is the first man in history to have won this competition for a fifth consecutive year.

However, his ultimate goal of being crowned the World’s Strongest Man remains, as yet, unfulfilled.

After being invited through a wildcard invitation to the competition in 2011 Bjornsson finished sixth. Since then he has come in at third in 2012 and 2013 and second in 2014.

This year, in April, Bjornsson finished third behind American Brian Shaw.
