Game Of Thrones' The Mountain Participates In A Washing Machine Throwing Contest

This is a video of World's Strongest Man contestant/Game Of Thrones' Gregor Clegane (The Mountain) Hafthor "Thor" Bjornsson competing in a 46kg (~101 pound) washing machine throwing competition. Unfortunately for him, his throws were not enough to beat those of Zydrunas Savickas, who also happened to take first place in the 2014 World's Strongest Man competition, leaving Bjornsson with second. That must be some rivalry they've got going. You know I've never thrown a washing machine before but I did kick one after it bleached my favorite hoodie and I did have to go to the doctor for complications stemming from an ingrown toenail. Also it's kinda frustrating to see these guys throwing perfectly good washing machines when I have to share two of them with the thirty other jerks who live in this building, none of whom have the common courtesy to clean the lint trap after using a dryer. I leave passive-aggressive notes in red ink.

Keep going for the competition, and I'm pretty sure Savickas tears a buttcheek at 2:20.

Thanks to Tam, who can't wait for the washing machine juggling portion of the competition.

    Lithuanian guy had way better technique. Did the mountain just find out he was doing this thing a few minutes beforehand, because it didn't look like he practiced at all.
