BEHOLD the most impressive specimen of all! Thor of Iceland!

Stepping out of Myth, the ManTitan, the viking Giant of the North, 209cm and 180kg (6’9” and 400 pounds!) HafThor Bjornsson.

“Thor” started his journey as the center for the Icelandic Basketball team. After an ankle injury he decided to find a new sport.

With very little training he entered a strongman contest in Iceland and did very well for himself. There he got the attention of Magnus Ver Magnusson, 4x WSM winner. Magnus noticed that Thor was almost 7ft and has the thickest bone structure he had ever seen, and had placed high in a field of competitors who had been training for many years.  Magnus informed Thor, that if he follow ALL his instructions he would become the best in the world one day.

That was in 2009 at the age of only 19. By 22 Thor had already placed 6th in the WSM Finals, and at the age of 23 he has already taken 3rd last year.

This year Thor has taken 2nd (controversially many thought he should have won) at the Arnold Classic Strongman contest in Brazil, and he won the Strongman League Championship in Latvia last weekend.

Thor continues to get stronger with every event, growing more muscle, and even his physique has come a long way.

The first thing they had to do was get Thor’s frame filled out. Tall task indeed.

The involved bulking up by over 70kg (154) pounds, all the way up to 200kg (440 pounds).

6 months ago Thor got his diet under control working with his nutritionist Fjarţjálfun Valgeirs Gauta
 and got himself to 180kg (400 pounds) with enough definition to look like a bodybuilder.

Here is a video of thor from this Weekend at Norways strongest man (results not yet posted), but here is a video of him doing the Atlas stones, the heaviest of which is now 205kg (451 pounds):
