He is huge, and as strong as he’s huge, and he recently took home the Arnold Strongman Classic 2018. Read on!

The Arnold Strongman Classic is an annual event in which strongmen across the wold compete. In the 2018 edition of the event, recently held at Columbus, Ohio, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson beat a total of five total competitions to take the title. Björnsson won the grand prize of $72,000 USD beating defending champion Brian Shaw to second place with a prize of $22,000 USD, and Russia’s Mikhail Shivlyakov who came third to win a prize of $17,000 USD. Check out his winning moves :

Event 1: Bag Over Bar

Event 2: Stone Shoulder

Event 3: Timber Carry

Event 4: Elephant Bar Deadlift

Event 5: Appolon’s Wheel

If you remember, he had finished second after a close race last year, and he had since then vowed that 2018 will be his year, and it seems like he’s sticking to that promise. As far as Cleganebowl goes, we will see if The Mountain can beat The Hound. If you ask us, seeing where the story is headed, our money is on The Hound. What do you think?
