Meet actor and strongman Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, best known for his role as Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on Game of Thrones.
Hafthor with Arnold Schwarzenegger for scale
Hafþór (pronounced Hafthor) weighs 400 lbs, stands 6′ 9,” and can handily deadlift 990 lbs—and he recently thrilled the internet by adopting a tiny Pomeranian puppy. The puppy’s name is Asterix, after the classic comic strip Viking.
The average weight of a Pomeranian is about 5 lbs, so the question is: can Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson deadlift 198 Pomeranians?
An artist’s rendition
Asterix, a red sable Pom, describes himself on his Instagram page as “a 14 week-old Pomeranian who loves to play, cuddle & take naps.” He has over 18,500 followers since his dad started the social media account in April!
