Hey guys,

Check out Thor grilling. This guy is a giant. I'd like to see wear he looks like standing next to Phil Heath.

I'm new to Strongman and Powerlifting but I'm a huge Fan of Thrones fan! I can't wait for it to come back now that I know who Thor is!

Thor is the 2018 Europe's Strongest and the first man in history to win it 4 times!

Awesome performance by Thor last night!

I was watching a live stream on facebook filmed by another strongman, the british Laurence "Big Loz" Shahlaei, but got to see only the loglift. Such a shame that these competitions that are big in strongman are not streamed live like some of the bodybuilding shows.

I couldn't find it anywhere. I couldn't even find updates on it. It's terrible how the strongman sport is covered..

Last year he did 455kg/1003lbs in the gym 2 weeks out before the show, it will be interesting to see how much can he lift this year.
