As if there was any doubt, Hafthor Bjornsson—aka "The Mountain" from Game of Thrones—recently proved that he is a very strong man.

The Mountain had already been named Europe's strongest man. Over the weekend, he added to his legacy by setting a record in the World's Strongest Viking competition.

Bjornsson broke a world record that, according to IronMind, had stood for 1,000 years. What did he do? He took five steps while carrying a log over 30 feet long that weighed 1,433 pounds.

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he won the competition.

According to his Instagram account, Bjornsson now has his eyes set on the World's Strongest Man event.
