So finally, Laurence Shahlaei of Swindon moved the 'Mountain'. Well, it's strange to hear but it actually happened in real, when the 'Mountain' from Game Of Thrones, Hafbor Bjornsson, lost the title of the strongest man in Europe to Laurence Shahlaei.
The two times title winner, who is also known for the infamous character 'The Mountain' in the Game Of Thrones TV series, and originally hails from Iceland, failed to make it for the third time in a row.
Laurence Shahlaei, also known as the 'Big Loz' is 32 years old with a gigantic stature of 6ft 2in height and 145 kg weight, happens to be the first Englishman to grab this title in almost 27 years after just recovering from a severe injury just a week ago.
"I've had a rough few years with injuries and to come back and win Europe's strongest man has just meant the world to me," he said.
He was all elated to win this title and full of praise for his fellow - Hafbor Bjornsson, from whom he snatched the fame. "He's a great strongman," as he was quoted saying after winning the title. "But it was my day and it felt really good to win."
