FIBO Africa welcomes the Mountain
Reed Exhibitions, in partnership with the Gauteng Tourism Authority, are thrilled to welcome Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson to the FIBO Global Fitness in Africa Festival from Friday 26th October to Sunday 28th October 2018 at the TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg. Not only does Hafþór (pronounced Half-Thor), wear the crown of the World`s Strongest Man which he won last month in the Philippines, he also stars as Gregor Clegane, a knight of House Clegane and the older brother of Sandor Clegane, and better known as "The Mountain” in the HBO hit series, “Game of Thrones”.
Hafþór, or Thor as he is also known, is used to breaking power lifting records. He is the first person to have won the Arnold Strongman Classic and the World's Strongest Man competitions in the same calendar year. In 2015 at the World's Strongest Viking competition held in Norway, Hafþór carried a 10-metre-long (33 ft), 650-kilogram (1,430 lb) log for five steps, thus breaking a 1,000-year-old record set by Orm Storolfsson !
“The Mountain” will be signing autographs and will be available for photographs on Saturday 27th October and Sunday 28th October. In addition to this he will also conduct a 45-minute question and answer session on both days. Tickets are limited so confirm your personal meeting with “The Mountain” today by logging on to Computicket and purchasing tickets for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Currently filming the final season of Game of Thrones” Thor had this to say to his legion of South African fans - "I am really looking forward to coming to the FIBO Global Fitness Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa and hope to see you there !"
