@Canson it’s 6’7.49” now! I’ll guess 6’7.5 to get it back up!
Canson said on 10/Sep/20
I’m in agreement with the average guess. 6’7.5 (202 cm)
Hotpots said on 9/Sep/20
Doesn’t look more than 6-7 here imo
S Karmala said on 7/Sep/20
I think Thor always looks like an inch taller than Brian Shaw, who looks at least 4.5-5.5 inches taller than Eddie Hall who is about 6ft 2. Therefore I would put Brian at around 6ft 6 1/2 - 6ft 7 1/2. I totally think that Thor would be around 6ft 8 or 6ft 8 1/4 by those estimates.
Yas said on 6/Sep/20
He quit strongman due to the YouTube doc that made him look like a cheating cry baby. Now he's in a huff.
Editor Rob
Check this recent clip of Hafthor with Hulk, I wonder how tall the guy in the hulk costume was!

Interesting at that comic con, for photo ops with guests they just put a perspex screen between the guest and the fans...
Arch Stanton said on 22/Aug/20
He's retired from strongman now. I wonder if like Eddie the 501 kg lift caused him some terrible health issue and he had to quit or die. Obviously he's better built and prepared for that lift than Eddie but it's still an insane amount to lift. Already looks to have lost over 50 pounds since May. 350 pounds would be a good weight for him. Eddie Hall seems to want to stay over that which is stupid for his height.

Have in your opinion hafthor the same distance between top head-eyes and eyes-tip ? 10 inch seems ok for him
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/20
Ronnie Coleman said you have to be "talented" to lift 501 kg. But Thor could barely lift 300 kg when he was getting into it, seriously dangerous technique too. Adding 201 kg to that is largely hard work but what I guess what Coleman is that he is genetically gifted, in that he has a greater potential than virtually anybody else.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/20
You'd never think his father could have been national arm wrestling champion but there's obviously a freakishly strong gene in there.

Rob, according to this photo, how tall is his father? I think he look 205 cm if Thor is 203 cm
Editor Rob
They are pretty close in height, you can see This shot shows his Father has an edge too.
However, I haven't watched much videos of them together, which sometimes can pinpoint the difference.
Guest User said on 1/Jul/20
This guy dead lifted 501 Kg which is a world record.
Alir?za said on 30/Jun/20
From what I've seen of his dad, I could buy 6'8.5 in his prime, he can still look it. Difficult to see where Thor got the "genetically gifted" strongman thing from as he's slight of build but from some of the lifts he did with Thor clearly surprisingly strong.

I think his grandpa was taller than both. Maybe 6'9-6'9.5.

Thors dad was arm wrestling champion in Iceland . He is surprisingly defeated jujimufu at arm wrestling

@Roderick. I think he's more 6 ft 8 than 6 ft 7 range, but 6'7.75 is a good shout. If he's in 6'7 range it's high 6'7 range. I suspect like Eddie he had started to encounter some life threatening health issues from being that heavy and lifting that heavy. Though he made it look easy and clearly could have pulled 520 even 530 kg he's generally looked in terrible health, always heavily out of breath and looking bloated. Always said he felt great but you could tell he didn't.
Roderick said on 27/May/20
6'7" range at 450lb is just huge. He's dropped a lot of weight already for his boxing match with Eddie and it makes me sad he might retire from WSM now.

Rob, who would you pick out of Eddie hall and Hafthor in a boxing match.

I've not seen any of them boxing in practice, it makes a difference having some good technique and stamina!
Tunman said on 20/May/20
@jolly
Well Hafthor's head is probably a little bigger,remember he's about a foot taller.He must have a 10"head.Maybe is it his gigantic frame that makes it look smaller than it really is.
Editor Rob
10-10.25 inch head on near 6ft 8 certainly doesn't look big, compared to someone like Michael Kingma, who in person has a bigger head than Hafthor.
jolly said on 17/May/20
def not 6'9. Rob you have an extremely big head, it is as long as his lol. Being shorter and having big head is the most epic way
Arch Stanton said on 15/May/20
He might be 206 cm barefoot out of bead actually.
Arch Stanton said on 15/May/20
C'mon he's only 32, even with the heavy weights I'd be surprised if he had really lost height already. I;m sure he got measured at 205 cm in shoes. Out of bed though there's a chance of that barefoot.
Alir?za said on 10/May/20
Maybe his height was 205 cm 10 years ago. His weight is over 200 kg. The spine may be shortened due to this weight

Tunman said on 9/May/20
Well,it could be that strongest man or weightlifting require the highest possible weight (in muscles of course).I mean look at weightlifter Lasha Talakhadze current WR holder who is like 170kg (375 Lbs) at 6'5.5".Or former WR holder Rezazadeh,about the same at roughly 6'1 range.I think once the purpose is mainly to lift objects,in other words there is no need to run,move fast,jump,kick or that sort of things,the more muscles the better.Now surely for rugby players,boxers and others,it wouldn't help to be much more than 250-60 even for the big dudes like say Price,Klitschko,Fury...there is a limit after which it will become a handicap for them.The heaviest boxer was probably Valuev at 310Lbs but was 6'11
berta said on 6/May/20
myself, yes i have a photo with him. we also nedd to keep in mind that he have workout really heavy before our photos with us. hes not gonna show himself without a pump and as big as possible. i still think he is atleast 203 cm and could be 204 and measured 205 early. he would not make me looks small if he was just about 6 cm taller.
Arch Stanton said on 4/May/20
The scary thing Rob is that it's almost the weight of two Jason Momoa's!! Even 18-19 stone is big, a lot of the bulked up taller rugby players are that, I can't even comprehend how somebody could be 25 stone let alone 32 stone! 206 kg is 32 stone 4!!!
Editor Rob
And Eddie and Hafthor deadlifting 1100 pounds, well that's nearly 8 Jenny's.

I struggle to lift 1 Jenny 😲
Kane99 said on 3/May/20
Is 6ft7 3/4 the most that you arguing for thor ? Is he much near to 6ft7 1/2 or 8 in your opinion ?
Editor Rob
I would say he measures near 6ft 8. There may well be greater chance of 6ft 8 than say 7.5.
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/20
Yeah there's something I don't like about him Rampage too, he seems very greedy in particular, places too much emphasis on subscribers, promotion and money, can't believe he's going to fight Eddie Hall. Seems a little childish. You've got to give it to him for the sheer hard work and commitment it takes to get that big and strong though. 1105 pounds is an insane amount, there was a slight buckle in his thighs half way up but other than that he made it look easy, I honestly think he's capable of 530.
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/20
@Rob you might want to mention that he said his heaviest was recently at 206 kg and that he weighed 205 kg on the day of his 501kg world record deadlift. You've been reading the newspapers Jebediah who copy each other, he's much heavier than 425 pounds at the moment! 206 kg is 454 pounds, I bet there's less than five guys on the planet under 6 ft 10 who are that heavy and not grotesquely obese.
Editor Rob
That's nearly 3 Rob's he weighs!
Jebediah said on 29/Apr/20
I'd say Thor is 6'7.5" and 193 kg (425 lbs). Monstrously strong as well. Can press 80kg dumbbells like they're made of styrofoam.
DragonicuZ 28 said on 29/Apr/20
He was definitely 6'9 when he played basketball but now after all that heavy lifting and workouts may have shrunken him down probably by 2.5 inches at least in my opinion
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/20
Arch, I originally thought Eddie Hall was similar size to Hafthor...personality wise, he's much larger

This guy comes across as rather unpleasant...someone you wouldn't want be around for too long...obviously you wouldn't want to mess with him either but he's seems like someone who gives off negative energy...possibly a bully even.
Kane99 said on 26/Apr/20
the small head make you look taller ? So If you had met undertaker (peak) could him have given you the illusion of being a bit shorter than thor because of his head size, when in reality they are very similar
Editor Rob
Yes, a smaller head can tend to give an illusion of being taller.
Myself said on 24/Apr/20
@berta
Do you have photos with Hafthor?
mrtguy said on 22/Apr/20
Rob, His head may not look big in pictures, but when you met him upclose in person you wouldn't have it was small??
Editor Rob
Compared to guys like Michael Kingma, his head looks an inch smaller, but could be average range for 6ft 6-8 range people.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Apr/20
I can imagine that there's absolutely no shortage of acting roles for the very tall and the very short.

As for his weight, Hafthor is well in access of four people of my weight range preceding an extremely indulgent Christmas and soaked through with rain after being caught in a merciless great downpour!

You could throw in a couple of large, fattened tomcats to those angry, scowling, rainsoaked four as well...

😒😔😝🤢

Huge Hafthor gets a thunderous great 6ft8! 💪😁
berta said on 21/Apr/20
also the time i mmeet him he looked mutch bigger than he does with you in the photo. he looks 20 kg lighter here. he was 192 kg when i meet him and have peaked at exactly 200 kg if it was true
berta said on 21/Apr/20
rob what about giving him the full 6´8 ? i mean i have meet many strongman that claims 2 meters and often is little under and almost evertime feels about the same height but thor really mad me feel small and i was 100 procent not under 197 cm at the time of day that i meet him. i think 6´8 and could even be a fraction over.
Editor Rob
He's a chance of measuring 6ft 8, it would be interesting to see him do a measurement video.

All these big youtubers should consider doing them 😀
Kane99 said on 21/Apr/20
Yes, I understand.. I don’t speak English very well. The only thing i meant is that a 5 inches head-eye range isn’t small in my opinion. I see various pic and videos of guys like this size who have a small head-eye range than hafthor, more similar to a normal size guys.
I just wanted to say this ! Sorry for my grammar
Editor Rob
Well I wouldn't say Thor's head was as big as Undertaker's.
Kane99 said on 20/Apr/20
@rob
Honestly a 5 inches forehead is huge in my opinion... I think there are people of this height who don't have so big forehead. Like matt Morgan who believe is more 4, 4.5 inches or Robert maillet
Click Here
That I believe is about 4 inches (normal forehead)
Maybe Hafthor have a small eyes- chin area and for this his head doesn’t look big. Btw 6ft7 3/4 for this guy seems right
Editor Rob
I'm meaning head-eye range.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Apr/20
Consistently looks 6 ft 8. Seen some of his Youtube videos recently, he is one of the most boring, uncharismatic people I've ever seen on there! Clearly doesn't like cameras, seems to treat it as a chore rather than something he enjoys. For all his hype he's really rather wooden and dull. Eddie Hall on the other hand was a great surprise, I thought their personalities would be the other way around! Best of luck to him lifting 501 kg though, that's a very extreme weight to lift, even if it's in his own gym.
Kane99 said on 18/Apr/20
Rob,
How long is his forehead from top of his skull to middle of eyes ? More than average I think
Editor Rob
Not huge, but might be near 5 inch. He actually doesn't have that big a head for his height, so even though he has a lot of width and muscle, in person he still pulls off looking extremely tall.
FriedChicken said on 11/Apr/20
The listing is ok but i think he needs a tiny downgrade to 6'7.5 if the comparison between Curtly Ambrose is accurate. It looks like a 0.50 difference rather than a 0.75

He's somewhere in the 6'7.5"-6'8" range.

Thor is further back but the guy isn't stood his best. He looks like he could be as high as 7 ft 9 there!! Who is that? With a height like that he's one of the tallest men in the world.

It's funny how these 6'7" guys want everybody to think they're 6'9". As a 6'7" (295 lbs) guy myself, not once have I ever claimed 6'9". In fact, I always thought I was just 6'6"...

@Sotiris:. Lebron can look the full 6’7”. May have been that he was not a morning measurement in 03 as Carmelo Anthony also looked near his measured height of 6’6.25 peak and Keith Bogans and Kirk Hinrich could too. 193 range for Bogans 189ish for Hinrich
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Aug/19
@Hernandez LeBron was measured 6'7.25" w/o shoes in the morning -- so there's a very good chance he's only 6'6.75".

Given that Ike Catcher looked as low as 6'6.5" w/ 6'4.5" Zlatan Ibrahimovic -- a pic I already posted, which you either didn't bother to check or simply prefer to ignore b/c it doesn't fit w/ what you choose to believe -- I fail to see how the man is 6'7.75", like you suggest.

@Sotiris Gravas Not true. Lebron is 1/2 taller than Luke Walton. Lebron is 6'7 and Luke 6'6 1/2. Ike Catcher had 5'11 Arnold at close to 9" on a youtube clip, Ike is 6'7.75" not 6'7. Hafthor and Ike were about the same height or Ike might be slightly taller.

Ha! Someone’s telling porkies. This is how a 5’11” guy looks on me, so going on the basis that Thor’s ~6’7.75” listing is right, the other guy surely can’t even be his claim in footwear.

It’s ridiculous how massive Thor is though. He’s more than just tall.

--------------

I looked at his profile to see a better pic, that was from a low angle to make the difference even bigger. The top of his head is near Thor's chin so he would be around 5'9" range. Thats just typical, every other 5'9" claims 5'11".

@Sotiris
Yep, nice find with the photo with Zydrunas was looking for it for ages! But my guess on Sarychev has always been 192-194.5 range max possible. A 6'4 guy imo, wether weak or flat or strong (less likely imo though).
Btw there's a video of him with Ekaterina Lisina, where she towers over him. A guy in the comments claimed that it was him to do that official measurement of Lisina and told me that he would try to ask Kirill to do it with him aswell.

There are multiple pictures of him and the 6’8” Brian Shaw. In some they look the same height, in others Hafthor definitely looks taller. The 6’9” sounds legit

He has a longer forehead than Brian Shaw and consistently look more than half an inch taller imo. And Brian is nowhere near 6'8 at his low, I'm pretty sure he must be around 6'6.75.

@Jordan87 Hafthor look 6'7 1/8 with Rob which the 5/8 inch went missing with footwear issues? Maybe Rob can explain to us.

Bare in mind Zwaan is in his 50s may have lost a fraction of height and Olivier was listed 7'1 & 3/4 in this site. Olivier look struggle on 5" taller than Hafthor on the top picture here Click Here

Swede2 said on 21/Mar/19
I may have to get artifial disk in the future but its not that bad yet. @rob I want to mention some things about measuring your height. In mine opinion a person should always stand in the position that gives there highest height when measured. Do you agree?. For example when being a big guy as myself I kneed a longer arm om the stadiometer to get the correct height. Other wise my measurement gets lower then it is cause cant keep a proper "stand tall position" if I stand to close to the wall. Also the "crown" of my head actually measures a fraction lower then if I look up and measure more to the front of my head. Whats your thougts on this things? Should one not always wanna measure there max height?. Best regards
Myself said on 19/Mar/19
@Swede2
What if you get an artificial disk implant in L5S1? You will re-gain some height and have fewer back problems!
@Ben Bell
Uhh...what happened that led to your problems?

@berta : 100 % correct about Big Z, he is over 6'3, source : I met him too and I was actually surprised, didn't expect him to be that tall..
He is a very strong 6'3 range
Ben Bell said on 17/Mar/19
@swede2
Similar here, lost an inch roughly at 42. Really feel around people I haven’t seen in 10 years.
Had spinal fusion surgery at L5 S1 and my SI joint has fused over time.
Always thought Hafthor was 6’9. Probably around 6’8. A monster of a man.
Swede2 said on 17/Mar/19
Yes symptoms have been backproblems and pain on and off since my early twenties. Have been an elite athlete in strengthsport since my teens and its just part of that life. Yes have herniated discs and arthoritis in lower back. The height loss I noticed when I was over 30 but I always lost about 1 inch from morning to night. No remorse its a good life to be strong and everything with sport has a risk.
Myself said on 15/Mar/19
@Swede2
Wow...in such a short amount of time...do you have herniated discs and DDD? Did you feel any symptoms? How fast was the loss? Did it happen very quickly of just over time? You used to reach your ultra low very often?
That's bad to hear...did you feel any remorse for something you did wrong about it or at the end of the day it was worth for all the lifting? Or maybe you just had a bad incident?
Swede2 said on 14/Mar/19
@myself Im 35 and I was about 1cm taller in my twenties. Xray shows my L4 and L5 are compressed with smaller gap between vertebrae then the rest. I have always been heavy and have always been lifting heavy weights so thats probably the reason.

A guy like Hafthor's height and weight can lose easily 2.5cm throughout the day, or even 3cm. But I highly doubt 4cm unless if it's an extreme low.
Swede2 said on 5/Mar/19
Thank you for answering @rob!. And people giving their height in sneakers are a bit crazy I think but I beleive you 😀👍
Charlie said on 4/Mar/19
If Hafthor would be only 202,6 cm then Brian Shaw isnt near 202 cm. Look at this pic from the weekend, even Brians hunching head dosnt make up for at least an inch of difference. So either Thor really is over 204 or Shaw is way below 202 cm, thats for sure.

Swede2 said on 3/Mar/19
@rob do you take in consideration that he might give hes morning height when he claims 205cm?. He could easy shrink 3-4cm in day. I always give my morning height wich is a bit over 182cm these days(use to be 183cm) and I once shrank 3cm from morning 182,5 to evening after heavy lifting 179,5cm. Im also a Strongman but only about 130kg compared to Hafthor 180-200kg so he should be able to shrink more when both much taller and heavier.
Editor Rob
He could have measured the height he claimed, earlier in the day. Some folk also measure in sneakers and think nothing of giving that height.

I did mention In a video about the chance of Hafthor being near 6ft 8.

Nah...they won't lose that much height. LOL
Myself said on 1/Nov/18
Rob, do you think he could have already lost a small fraction or/and lose additional height in the following years?
How can anybody possibly remain the same after putting the spine under so extreme stress that often? I understand that he is strong (the strongest man in the world now actually!) but still, he's often not doing lifts in his comfort zone (like all competitive strongmen)...I think transferring part of the stress on the spine at those levels is pratically assured and necessary to be able to achieve outstanding results (even without considering occasional incorrect form that may happen)...

I'm quite surprised by Zydrunas Savickas though, he doesn't appear to have lost anything and is 43, after decades of competing and with many victories behind (and in front, i hope!) him!
Editor Rob
I don't know if he's lost anything noticeable.

Hey Rob. Some time ago somebody linked here the photo of Julius and Bradley Martyn, and you said that the claim of the latter, 6'3, looks legit. Maybe you are right but i have my doubts by looking some videos and other photos. He looks max 6'2 to 6'2.25 to me.
Here he is with 5'8 Jay: Click Here
With Calum von Moger, that claims to be 6'2 and even 6'3 Click Here Click Here but doesn't look too much taller than nowadays Arnold Click Here Standing at his tallest Click Here
I guess Calum at about 6'1 to 6'1.75 max and Bradley between 6'1.5 to 6'2.25, 6'2.5 max.
I gotta ask the expert! What would your guess be for them, Rob? How tall does Kirill look to you, considering your guess? Click Here I think he is between 192/193 to 195, 196 at max.

Is this also the kinda comment you would consider out of topic/spam?
Editor Rob
In some photos there he can look 6ft 2
Canson said on 29/May/18
@Rob: 6’7.5 may be a better listing for him. He actually looks what Christian says below 6’7.25-.5 tops in the height chart. He doesn’t look anything close to 6’8”

In person though, I think 6ft 7 would be too low, anywhere between 6ft 7.5-8 I believe is arguable.

There's no need. 6'7.75" is more than enough, as he looks 6'7.25" if you click at the height chart. He's about 6'7.25"-6'7.5" like how the Average Guess has him.
Editor Rob
I think he probably will measure closer to 8 than 7 in all probabilities.
Danimal 177 said on 8/May/18
6'7.5" guy. He refers to himself as 6'8" in MANY interviews. I'm seen him been given a height of 202cm in the past at a couple of competitions. Brian Shaw is max 6'6" (his 6'8" listing was from his basketball days in big basketball sneakers) and even Terry Hollands is really around 6'3" which was his listed height at the 2005 WSM compeition. He was also called out at 6'4" at the 2010 WSM pre-contest exhibition, yet has in recent years been given a 6'6" height listing. They are all given boosts in height like in wrestling. Even Big Z was listed at 6'2" in his early years and later 6'3". Mark Felix was billed at 6'4", but as of last year they started giving him a 6'1" listing at the WSM.

I really don’t think 6’9” is out of the question for a ‘good day’ measurement.

ManKo said on 14/Feb/18
He has to be over 400 pounds, no way he is only 350 pounds. I have a lot of friends who are amateur powerlifters/ strongman and many are close to 300 pounds, but they are much shorter than Bjornsson.

Besides if he were just 350 pounds he would not be able to deadlift 1000 pounds, and there are many videos of Bjornsson deadlifting that amounts. Your 6'7 is he overweight or very strong / muscular too?
Carson said on 10/Feb/18
I live in Finland, especially this time of the year dont go out often but when I do, its not uncommon to spot taller people I'm 6'4" myself and the other day bumped into a guy who was at least (a real) 6'10/11" FYI but also very bulky not lanky at all.
I've a friend who is 6'7" and almost 400lbs and many other in 6'7" 6'8" range not as heavy but you get the picture.
I don't believe Bjornsson is actually over 6'7" and certainly not 400lbs maybe around 350 pounds
Josh Jeffords said on 10/Feb/18

@Carson, I don't know if you're referring to height or bulk or what area you live in but I live in Philadelphia and am a bit under 6'5" and very rarely see someone appreciably taller than myself, maybe once every few weeks or in a month I'd see 6'7"-6'9" guys but yeah that's rare. I'm curious what region one would daily encounters guys over 6'8"! I see a fair deal of people who probably weight north of 300 pounds but usually they're morbidly obese.

Guys he has always said his 2.05 meters which is 6'8 3/4" theres no noticeable difference of 1 quarter of an inch without a measurement tape in shoes no dough his about 206.5 meters but my personal believe is that in a good day in the morning his 2.05 meters probably by night 2.02-2.03 meters remember this guy weight 185-200 kg thats lots of pressure in someones spine, also he was listed 2.08 meters once when he was about 40 kg lighter.

I would go with the full 6’8”. Wouldn’t rule it out as he looked taller than Strowman by 1 inch even though they are around the same size. His eyeline hits 6’2” and his chin maybe at 5’8.5” so I would suppose he isn’t anything shorter than a good 6’7.25” although I do wonder why his head is 10.75” long. Seems about 1 inch bigger than yours. Undertaker and Kane would probably edge him out in their peak but now they would be the same height as him or a little shorter.

Here is 3 generations of Björnsson, the father looks the shortest, haftor inte the middle och the grandfather the tallest.
Click Here
Here is Haftor and his grandfatjer, now suddendly no one could believe the grandpa could be even near 2 meters.
Click Here
And now the shortest oe are the tallest one, the father of Thor. So totally the opposite than the first picture.

A picture can be very deceiving, and specially when debating centimeters and inches the only way to know is a measure.
Pierre said on 9/Jan/18
around 6"7' imo
Bard said on 9/Jan/18
Not sure how reliable this picture is but he's definitely at least 6'7 and probably around 6'8.
Erik said on 4/Jan/18
Can you do Terry Hollands height.
Trickie Dickie said on 30/Dec/17
I have just watched this guy performing on Europe SM 2017, as shown on UK Television. He's a really imposing figure, but very athletic and fast with it, and a magnificent specimen.

I think Thor is in the daily variable range of 6'8 to 6'9, and thus he balances out a whole foot taller than me!
I concur that he would be excellent in wrestling with his frame. And Rob, it's for such men as these, that I really envy you your job! If you need an assistant in the UK, let me know!
James said on 27/Dec/17
Wow huge head!!! 10.5" - 10.75" range?
Jim Hopper said on 23/Dec/17
Hey Rob can you do Devon Larratts height please. Hes world champ arm wrestler. He beat Hafthor in a match.

Oliver Richters is not a doubt a giant but he was no taller than Big Show whem they met and seemed between 4-5-inches than Thor when they met. I see him no taller than 7-foot, which still is impressive.

I believe Thor would be taller than Martyn Ford if they met; Martin seems more of a 6'6 individual. ----

Those pics of Olivier and Big Show have a serious problem in getting heights.

That being Big Show is purposely out angling Olivier.

Big Show has himself an entire body space closer to a camera that is pointed upward toward them.

Olivier could still be a lot taller than Big Show if the were back to back.

In the second picture, where they're looking at each other you can see that even though Big Show is a full body space closer to the camera, he is looking up at Olivier. Big shows head is clearly leaned back and Oliver is clearing looking down at Big Show.

Also in a recent photo on Adam Scherr's IG he is with Hafthor. Hafthor has around 2-3" on Adam, and Olivier has more than that on Hafthor. Adam Scherr is only 3-4" shorter than Big Show.

just want to tell you guys i meet 4 times world strongest man Žydrūnas Savickas today and was a little shocked about his height. i thought he like everyone else i meet was shorter thn the listed height buut he is listed as 191 and i thought he looked minimum 191 but was probably 192 cm tall. my brother is barely 191 about 190,5 cm and he was little littel taller than my brother. i have photots of both him and me and him and my brother but they are pretty bad because he is standing 10 cm in front of us so i guess he gets a little advantage in the photos.
shoe said on 2/Dec/17
Rob, wouldn´t you say the picture above is at a little bit wrong angle, slanting a bit to the right, thats why people guess 6 foot 7 according to the line? He definitely seems taller than 6 foot 7 with Joe Manganiello. I would guess 6 foot 8.25 inches.
Alex 6'3 said on 29/Nov/17
Rob, I imagine that when we see Bjornsson during strongman events is less than 202 cm due to lifting weights..right?
Editor Rob: after one of these competitions they certainly will be at extreme low's.
Johno said on 28/Nov/17
People need to remember, that strongmen gbulk up coming into strongman events. He weighed close to 200kg at the WSM17 and looked it, he obviously slimmed down 10-20kg since then. Whilst eating and training hard, vitamin S helps to gaining rapid weight but whilst they come they come off their supplements, they lose some weight.
kurtz said on 27/Nov/17
edit 202 cm.
Johno said on 26/Nov/17
This guy should really give wrestling a go one day, some where down the line. I can really see him winning WSM 2018 and he may want to consider a career from there forth.

I know Eddie Hall is scheduled to make a WWE appearance in some form and his movement would be some what similar to Mark Henry's but Thor seems pretty agile and mobile with the right combination of size and strength not too disimilar to Strowman except bigger and slightly taller although i doubt he could cut a good promo in native english.

tree said on 9/Nov/17
Rob and others can u belive that he now weighs 200kg?
He measured his weight at 200kg so it must be legit,but i don't understand where he hides all that mass,sure he is big and muscular but 200kg of mmuscle is an awful lot even at 6'8 he should look like a cgi Hulk at 200kg.
Martyn Ford is 6ft8 and only 145kg I wonder how can Thor weighs 55kg more than him,they look about the same size.

Yeah, I have a hard time believing he's that heavy. I might have bought 400lbs.
Kurtz said on 26/Nov/17
max i would buy is 197 cm. height and 140 kilograms weight.
truly kidding people anything else above!
It's rampant in hollywood boost not only height, but even weight.
tree said on 15/Nov/17
Thor has a higher BMI at 6ft8 and 200kg than Morgan Aste 6ft3 and 160kg
Conform the new BMI formula a a 6ft8 man with 200kg has a BMI of 44.2 morbidly obese category,but of course this guy is all muscle
berta said on 15/Nov/17
Hi Rob i ws wondering if you could do a site for Žydrūnas Savickas . who is the Worlds strongest man and also steve Cook. fittnes guy that have gained alot of attention last years. the thing is im going to meet both of those guys on the 3rd of demeceber. and if they have time i will try to get a photo of them both with me. i will also make a video of me when i get measured monring and evening for proof and you can use it if you want to make a site on both those guys. both are very famous so i guess it would be good to give them that. my guess on them now Before meating them is steve Cook 184,5 and Žydrūnas Savickas 190 cm

The most "biggest" and most muscular guy out there seems to be former strongman turned bodybuilder, Morgan Aste who is around ~6'3 but got on the scales and weighed 160kg at less than 10-percent bodyfat.
Johno said on 11/Nov/17
The most i have seen him weigh on the scale was around 195kg when he got on the scales just before WSM 17.

The thing is, i believe he carries a lot of mass on his thighs and calves too so his weight might not be that obvious.
tree said on 9/Nov/17
Editor Rob: 440 pounds seems a lot, but then, he might have bulked up a bit more recently
This is how he looked at 200kg Click Here I don't think he looks that heavy
He is the only one on the planet who is 200kg of pure muscle.
And this is Big Show at 170kg with 6ft4 Billy Gunn Click Here

Rob you would have thought just by looking and them that Thor weighs 30kgs more?That dude has to have a lot more muscles than it looks to weigh that much.
Editor Rob: Show is a couple of inches taller, but then Hafthor does in many photos look to have a lot of mass too.

Manko said on 9/Nov/17
With Joe Mangianello, who is according to Rob 195cm.

And he is clearly taller.

Theorm said on 2/Nov/17
Look at his photos with Oliver Richters, the Dutch Giant, who is a little bit below 7'2". Then compare them with richters photos with Martyn Ford, who is also massive and looks a legit 6'8". Bjornsson looks taller than Ford in the photos despite the fact that he is leaning in the photo. Therefore I don't really believe any claim that he is below 6'8", unless Martyn Ford is shorter than 6'8", but look at the dude he's massive.
Theorm said on 2/Nov/17
He's a massive guy
Anonymous said on 31/Oct/17
He is a huge guy and I would guess about 6 Foot 8.5 and about 390 Pounds
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 28/Oct/17
@Zahid

Shaw's definitely not 6'8". Maybe right at 200cm, especially when he was listed 6'8" in basketball which list shoe heights.
Zahid said on 22/Oct/17
He must be taller than 6'7.75". He is always taller than 6'8" Shaw in pictures. I would guess 6'8.5" at least.

Rob how tall is the fat guy? Click Here

A Man said on 17/Sep/17
I wonder how much the guy on the left weighs. Gotta be over 550 lbs.

He looks over 100lbs heavier than Hafthor(380-400), so I think that guy is 500-520lbs.
Fredrik 6f midget said on 10/Oct/17
Its not a big deal to be tall in Nordic countries, and considered pathetic to lie about your height. In fact; in Norway kids or teens who are growing to be to tall, get growth inhibitors systematicly (especially girls). I don’t think there is any reason to believe Hafthor is exaggerating his height of 206m. This picture says nothing about posture, footsoles or time of day. I weigh barely 120kg (250 pounds) and even I am noticeably shorter in the evenings.

You could cut the faces out or paint them black.
Would like to see the pictures if they are good evidence.
sumdude said on 26/Sep/17
Actually saw him person back in 2015, he was promoting "mens perfume". The top of my friends head(same height as me: 183.5/184cm) was a tad bit below hafthors nose by ~1-2cm. I would post a picture but for privacy reasons I won't. 203-204cm with good posture 7 hours into his day, easy. The man is YUGE.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Rob wasn't he listed 6'8" at one point?
Editor Rob: possibly, but I can't remember, he's stuck on this mark anyway since I met him.
baja74 said on 25/Sep/17
Damn this dude is big! His arm is the size of Rob's head. I saw somewhere he mentioned he was weighing at 410 for GOT. But not a whole lotta difference between 380 and 410.
And based on the photo with Rob, I would say he's a legit 6'7" flat. I have no reason to doubt Rob's height charts.
Anonymous said on 24/Sep/17
He is 6'8 3/4" or 205 cm in my opinion and his weight is around 440 lbs or 200 kg in his strongman events his most likely around 420 lbs 190 kg
