He's finally reached the top of the mountain
hem oui

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor Clegane AKA The Mountain on Game of Thrones, is a force to be reckoned with in the novels and on the show. He's also a force in real life, as the actor recently earned the title of World's Strongest Man at a competition in the Philippines. 

Björnssonn, who is 6' 9" and weighs 400 pounds, won the title on Sunday, improving from his previous second- and third-place finishes over the years.  

Björnssonn quoted the Will Smith movie The Pursuit of Happyness. He wrote: "Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they are going to tell you that you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period."  

Congrats to the Mountain, if anyone is going to win the World's strongest man, it should be a man nicknamed the Mountain.
