Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson's Top 2019 Arnold, Strongman Moments

This was quite a weekend for Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson at
this years 2019 Arnold Sport Festival.
For the second year in a row, he won the Arnold Strongman Classic
Crown. Björnsson has been competing in the Arnold Strongman
Classic for nine years. He worked his way up, finishing fifth in
2016, then second in 2017 before taking the title in 2018.

Prior to the lift that solidified his Strongman status for the
second year in a row, Björnsson made his way around this year’s
Arnold Festival, even grabbing a moment with Miles Taylor. “Two
champions. Congratulations,” read the Arnold Sports Instagram.The
24-year-old Taylor, who has cerebral palsy, had his own, special
night when he
deadlifted 185 pounds
to kick off the first night of the Arnold
compeititions. 

Björnsson warmed up by carrying giant rocks around, showcasing
his mountainous strength in the Arnold Stone Shoulder event.

Of course, the highlight of the Arnold Fest was when Hafþór

broke his own lifting record
from last year with a deadlift of
1,044.9 pounds, using the rogue elephant bar. Last year, Thor
lifted 1,041 pounds and toppped
it this past February
 when he lfited 1,042. 

They don’t call him The Mountain for nothing. We think listening
to
Adele
while lifting is really paying off for Thor.  In the
end, Thor did it again: “And still the king. Back to back Arnold
Strongman Classic champ.”
