Hafthor Bjornsson, also referred to as Thor and therefore the Mountain, just broke the planet record for deadlifting quite any human in history — and he used his crowning moment to call out the very man who held the previous deadlift record. Hafthor Bjornsson set a record within the deadlift on Saturday, hoisting 1,104.52 pounds (501 kilograms). The 31-year-old set the record in his native Iceland.

Thor,” is best known for his role as “The Mountain” Gregor Clegane within the HBO series “Game of Thrones.”  the 6-foot-9, 425-pound Bjornsson broke the previous record of 1,102.31 pounds (500 kilograms), set by England’s Eddie Hall in 2016.

The Game of Thrones actor and strongman was ready to deadlift 501 kilograms, or an astonishing 1,104 pounds. The lift was two pounds quite the previous record, which was set by Björnsson’s rival Eddie Hall in 2016.

In a post-lift interview, Björnsson called out Hall to a presumable match, saying he signed a “seven-figure” fight contract with Core Sports — and knows Hall was approached with an equivalent offer. Thor involved him to “sign the Core Sports contract” and meet him within the ring.

“I believe today I could’ve done more, but what is the point?” Bjornsson said after his lift. “I’m proud of this. My family and friends, they were proud of this, and I have decided to call it.”

He won the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2018 and has finished third or better per annum since 2012.

He posted a video of the feat later that day.
