Hafthor Thor Július Bjornsson holding and pulling two large ‘Greco-Roman’ pillars (or columns) of stone (probably). In one of the many events, he participated in Europe’s Strongest Men.

In this image we see Thor Bjornsson lifting an elephant bar during a test of Europe’s Strongest Man. A kind of Proof of Deadlift somewhat like “Exotic” to the eye, but that is typical, or quite common, in strongman and powerlifting competitions.

He is also the World’s Ultimate Strongman champion in the 2018 edition.
