The Mountain breaks world deadlift record

Game of Thrones strongman ‘Mountain’ breaks the world deadlift record

What did you do during the global Coronavirus lockdown? Well, Game of Thrones strongman The Mountain broke the deadlift world record.

The Icelandic actor and professional weightlifter set the new world record on Monday.

Want to guess how much?

501kg. That’s basically the same weight as a Polar Bear. Or a small Smart Car. So yeah, pretty strong.

And where else should The Mountain break the world deadlift record than at Thor’s Power Gym in Iceland.

Staying in the sporting world, we’ve got news from Egypt star Mo Salah. The striker has been getting up at 2.30 am during Ramadan to get fit for when the football season kicks back in.
