Hafthor (or Hafþór, if you're feeling friendly) is actually a two-time winner of "The Strongest Man in Iceland" competition. This is impressive because Iceland is like the Wisconsin of Europe, except instead of cheese they make impossibly strong nightmare men. He originally got into the strongman circuit after a knee injury halted his basketball career, which means that he probably has the best FG% in all of King's Landing.

All in all, he seems like a cool guy. We here at Dorkly wish him luck and we look forward to seeing a lot more from this promising young talent in future seasons.
