He makes it look easy.

Hafþór Björnsson trains and competes as a professional strongman when he’s not busting skulls for Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones, and he just shattered yet another world record.

Fans have watched Björnsson break multiple world records (one of which was more than 1,000 years old) to their amazement. He’s currently in Botswana for the World’s Strongest Man competition, and on the third day, he tossed a 15 kg (33.0693 lbs.) over a pole 7.15 meters long (or 23.45801 feet). It’s astounding to watch, and Björnsson makes it look easy.

Day 3. Keg toss. 15kg over 7.15meters. New world record. I had plenty more in the tank!

How does he celebrate? By lifting people into the air and soaking in a couple of baths to recover.

Life's good in Africa! @andreasif

It’s yet to be seen if Björnsson will break any more records in Botswana, but he’s still got plenty of fight in him.H/T The Comeback
