Hafthor Bjornsson has gone from Game of Thrones to King of Stones.

The Icelandic beast, famous for his role as The Mountain in the TV series based on author George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series, is more than just a pretty face. He was crowned Europe’s Strongest Man last week.

A 6-foot-9, 400 pounds, Bjornsson appeared to have an in-your-face attitude, poking holes in his competition en route to winning the tournament.

Upon completing the Atlas stones challenge, Bjornsson ripped his shirt and screamed into a microphone.

“I am the future of strength! The King of the Stones!”

Europe’s Strongest Man serves as a qualifying tournament for the World’s Strongest Man contest. Bjornsson placed second earlier this year in the premier strongman event.

No horses were harmed during the competition.
