Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson Height

"When you want to be the best, you do whatever it takes."

~ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson needs no introduction. He has earned eternal fame by playing the role of Ser Gregor Clegane - The Mountain who Rides in the Game of Thrones TV series. But this introduction was for casuals - Mr. Júlíus Björnsson is actually quite an accomplished strongman.

He is the first person to lift 501 kg and the second person to lift more than 500 kg. Besides that, he has won Europe's Strongest Man in the year 2014 to 2019 (except 2016), and he has also won gold at the Arnold Strongman Classic from 2018 to 2020.

About Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson's Real Height

Mr. Júlíus Björnsson is a massive man - ideal for playing someone like The Mountain That Rides. Though the book version of Ser Gregor Clegane was closer to 8 feet tall. While not that tall Mr. Júlíus Björnsson makes up for more than that where width is concerned.

Mr. Júlíus Björnsson's official listing is 6'8.75" (205 cm). It may be that he was measured above 6'8" some time close to the morning but after looking him up, and comparing him to some other people, we think an inch below that number may be a better number to describe his height. Which would make him still slightly taller than Robert Oberst (6'6"), Brian Shaw (6'7.5"), and far taller than a 6'2" Eddie Hall.
