What Is Hafthor Bjornsson’s Net Worth In 2022?

What Is Hafthor Bjornsson’s Net Worth In 2022?

Hafthor Björnsson is one of the hottest names in the sporting industry right now, given his long-term feud with Eddie Hall which is taking the pair into the boxing ring this weekend in Dubai.

In 2015, Björnsson was crowned the World’s Strongest Viking in Norway, after carrying a 10-metre long log for five steps - beating a 1,000-year-old record in the country.

Thor also famously played the role of Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane in the fourth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones in 2013, his first acting role. 

In May 2020, the heavyweight athlete deadlifted a record-breaking 501 kg under World’s Strongest Man rules, beating Eddie Hall’s previous record of 500 kg.

Now 33, Björnsson is already a well-established sportsman, actor and entrepreneur. 

What is Thor Bjornsson’s net worth in 2022?

In 2022, Hafthor Björnsson has an estimated net worth of $2 million (£1.9 million), according to WealthyPersons

Thor began his athletic career in basketball, playing as a centre for many Division I teams in Iceland, which led him to play for the Icelandic National Team in 2006.

However, recurring ankle injuries meant that he had to retire early from the sport.

From 2008 onwards, the sportsman dipped his toes into strength training, and two years later became regarded as an Icelandic strongman, and has since won Iceland’s Strongest Man competition for nine years running.

Not only does Thor have a stellar strongman and acting career, as well as his basketball past, he has also gained sponsorship and helped advertise for companies like sports nutrition supplement company Transparent Labs through his Instagram platform.

The strongman has also co-founded a US-based Icelandic protein yoghurt in recent moments, aptly called Thor's Skyr and has his own branded sportswear brand, Thor’s Power Apparel.
