'The Mountain' from 'Game of Thrones' demolished the keg toss world record

New, comments

Hafþór Björnsson's exploits are well known. He's Europe's strongest man, a frighteningly large human being and legitimately one of the most terrifying characters on Game of Thrones, which is one heck of an achievement. Now Björnsson can add a new bullet point to his resume: Keg toss world record holder.

Björnsson took a 33-pound keg and threw it 24 feet and six inches over the bar. It's like the high jump, but better.
