Watch: Thor ‘The Mountain’ Björnsson Breaks World Record in Sandbag Toss

Thor sets record at Arnold Classic

Hafþór Björnsson may have come in second at the 2017 Arnold Strongman Classic, but he definitely didn’t disappoint when it came to creating some kick-ass highlights.

The Mountain shined bright at the sandbag toss when he heaved 100 pounds 15 feet into the air without much of a struggle.


He also added to his impressive competition by deadlifting 966 pounds.


However, Björnsson is no rookie to breaking records. And in 2015, he broke a kettlebell by throwing it over 19 feet in the air.

Although he didn’t win, he did enjoy the competition, and posted this picture with the champ, Brian Shaw. Björnsson’s caption: “We’ll meet again soon. WSM is close and I’m looking forward to our battle there!”
