In this picture he looks his listing but looks about 6"8.5 every where else except GOT he looks 6"11 but thats not legit.
Canson said on 10/Jan/19
I think 6’8” is reasonable for Mailman but I don’t rule 6’7.75
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@184guy: Malone is definitely taller. But Magic May have only been 6’7” meaning Malone May have been 6’7.75 as opposed to 6’8” flat
184guy2 said on 8/Jan/19

Malone is OBVIOUSLY taller than Magic in the photo that you sent . He's no less than 6'8
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
Mr Rob ! If the picture is authentic , any living breathing human being can see this , this man is 6'7" no more , no less , and you are 5'8" no more , no less .

So is this some kind of joke ! why would you want to list him as being 6'8" ? Are you serious ?
Yuval said on 20/Dec/18
Rob, how tall do you think Davon Larrat is? He claimes 6'5 but looks shorter then Barkley, there is a video on youtube with them and shaq arm wresteling.
Editor Rob
He could be 6ft 4.5
miller said on 15/Dec/18
malone is 6.8 and taller than magic but i agree hafthor is 6.7 i think he looks shorter next to rob than tyler mane
Sotiris Gravas said on 13/Dec/18
He's not more than 6'7". Funny how he doesn't even look that tall next to little 5'5" (not 5'5.5") Manny Pacquiao... Click Here

For comparison, here's now 6'7" Karl Malone w/ Manny... Click Here

6'7" Malone w/ 6'7" Magic... Click Here
Robert Beltran said on 11/Dec/18
Maybe he's 6'8" exactly.
Yuva said on 9/Dec/18
Hafthor said he loses over an inch between morning and night, which is very reasonable taking into account his long spine and heavy lifting.6'9 in the morning and a bit below 6'8 in the evening
JEM said on 28/Nov/18
Yuval said on 12/May/18
Brian shaw is at least 6'7..thor can be 6'7.5 really depends what kind of lifting they did that day lol..they lose an inch+ on a regular training day.

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.
Zahid said on 17/Oct/18
@Rob: I see you added a height scale to the image. Good idea! :-)
Yas said on 29/Sep/18
Terry Hollands 6'3 lolol. Please!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Sep/18

210cm was a ridiculous listing for him. I can kind of understand it if he was a pro wrestler, but he's not.
Bobby (5'10) said on 20/Sep/18
Did he look about 6'8 in person? He looks to be 6'7.25 by the height scale.
Editor Rob
Well that's a rescan exactly as the photo is taken, but I think he looked nearer 6ft 8 than 7 in person.
ty9 said on 13/Aug/18
A 6'3 guy will be at his eyebrows level rob?
Editor Rob
You'd expect that range.
Pierre said on 4/Aug/18
Rob seems to slouch a little bit more than him here,or is standing at maximum as straight as him,and by the scale,i go with 6"7'.
tree said on 23/Jul/18
He is literally the worlds strongest man yet he still feels he has to inflate his height.
Any of you guys remember when he was in uk strongest man competitions and was listed at 210cm?
He was only 24 years old,his weigh was listed at 160-170,definitley not near 190kg like nowadays,he gained alot of mass since than.
Yuval said on 21/Jul/18
He claimed 6'8 in the past..with all the fame and the glory he started claiming 6'9..I believe the 6'8 claim
Adam Scherr said on 20/Jul/18
He didn't say anything
tree said on 14/Jul/18
@Adam Scherr what did he reply?
Adam Scherr said on 12/Jul/18
He was asked what was real height his real height on Instagram and he said real height 205 cm and i said you are 202.6 cm
tree said on 12/Jul/18

I am sure his not over 6ft8,you guys should say to him measure yourself afternoon lol
He may get 205cm morning when he wakes up.
Julian said on 12/Jul/18
Rob he was asked what was his real height on Instagram and he said 205 cm.
Editor Rob
205cm barefoot I'm not so sure about, but ina shoe yes.
tree said on 3/Jul/18
Rob if he would look straight ahead he would have a full head on a 177cm guy?
Editor Rob
Yeah he has a chance, although probably his head is 10-10.25
Shane said on 13/Jun/18
@Lanky if it is it should be imo. I measure first thing in morning to get my full height.
Lanky said on 5/Jun/18
Has regularly been claiming 205cm on instagram recently. I’m trying to figure out, could that be his straight-out-of-bed height?
Tunman said on 5/Jun/18
The chart shows a 28cm difference,so more like 201cm but Hafthor could be dropping a little height.Would be interesting if Rob had the chance to compare him to Peter Crouch.They can be at the same mark despite Hafthor being like 250Lbs heavier.
6ftMedium said on 4/Jun/18
I feel like he's 6'8"
Myself said on 30/May/18
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”
Editor Rob
In person though, I think 6ft 7 would be too low, anywhere between 6ft 7.5-8 I believe is arguable.
Duhon said on 20/May/18
This is Hafthor next to Oliver Richters. Is it safe to say Richters looks a strong 7' here? Click Here
Editor Rob
With nearly 6ft 8 Hafthor, I think Oliver has to be over 7ft there.
Yuval said on 12/May/18
Brian shaw is at least 6'7..thor can be 6'7.5 really depends what kind of lifting they did that day lol..they lose an inch+ on a regular training day.
Nik said on 11/May/18
The average vote of 6'7.39" may be nearer the truth!

@ tree - I like your name!
tree said on 10/May/18
Brian Shaw is no less than 6ft7 and Thor at worst is 6ft7.5
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/May/18

I think Shaw's a solid 200cm. I can't see him as low as 6'6". He edged out a 199-ish Braun Strowman if you consider his camera disadvantage Click Here
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/May/18

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.
Jordan87 said on 8/May/18
World's Strongest man now ( Officially) . He is not over 6'7 BY the way. Rob's Picture proves that.

Not that it matters b/c whether is 6'7 or 6'9, he would Crush any of us here. Lets not forget that now.
Lanky said on 8/May/18
Rob, I think you should give him the bump up to 6’8”.
tree said on 6/May/18
Finally he won Worlds Strongest Man

Was watching the awards ceremony for the 2018 Arnold Classic and Thor was stood alongside Brian Shaw. Thor looked to have a legit 1 inch + advantage over him, and he absolutely towered over the other 6ft 3/4 competitors.

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

6’9 barefoot? Nope, he’s looks 6’7.5....maybe 6’8 right out of bed but that’s questionable. Forget 6’9 lol

Definitely not under 6'7", would you say he could look 6'8" with ease?
Editor Rob
In person I think he looks taller than 6ft 7 for sure, and 6ft 8 isn't exactly impossible as he did claim it.

6ft7 and a half!
Yuval said on 5/Mar/18
He himself claimed 6'8 several times..also mentioned this is evening height. I think he is a full 6'8
Yas said on 26/Feb/18
Saw him getting measured for a suit. 62 inch chest and a 22 inch neck. I can totally buy 400lbs.
ManKo said on 17/Feb/18
He claims 192kg or 423 pounds here and he really looks that heavy:

Click Here

He probably drops about 20kg or 45 pounds when he is not competing, but is is definitely above 400 pounds during the strongman season.
Duhon said on 15/Feb/18
This is Hafthor back to back (barefoot) with 6' 276 lbs bodybuilder Stan Efferding. He easily looks 400 lbs here. Click Here
Adnan said on 14/Feb/18
200 cm
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
Think its actually a fair claim 6 7 .75 is a big shoe away from 6 9 we are not likely to see many folks even vikings out and about barefoot.
Hope he wins next year wsm and then gets into some more movies he is very charismatic for a giant.
ManKo said on 7/Feb/18
Carson where do you live that you see 6'8 420 pounds guys on daily basis?
Tall Sam said on 7/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.
BIG PETE 6'9 1/2" 387 lbs said on 6/Feb/18
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.
Carson said on 4/Feb/18
I see bigger dudes around here almost daily basis don't get fooled by claims, Martyn Ford can't be 6' 8" either he is as tall as Hulk Hogan, as for Bjornsson's yes probably around 6'7" no more.

Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 14/Jan/18

Sorry but Hafthor looks at the very most 6'7.5" next to Rob. And the difference between him and Strowman is bigger than just an inch because Hafthor's leaning a lot. Click Here
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 11/Jan/18
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.
Charlie said on 11/Jan/18
Here is 3 generations of Björnsson, the father looks the shortest, haftor inte the middle och the grandfather the tallest.

Here is Haftor and his grandfatjer, now suddendly no one could believe the grandpa could be even near 2 meters.

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?

Hey Rob can you do Devon Larratts height please. Hes world champ arm wrestler. He beat Hafthor in a match.

-----Johno said on 11/Nov/17
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.
berta said on 2/Dec/17
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.
Oanh said on 26/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.

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

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

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

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.

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

He is a huge guy and I would guess about 6 Foot 8.5 and about 390 Pounds

Shaw's definitely not 6'8". Maybe right at 200cm, especially when he was listed 6'8" in basketball which list shoe heights.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
Jackson Martinez said on 21/Sep/17
Rob, any Chance to see him again for another picture in the near future?
Editor Rob: I think it is unlikely.
A Man said on 17/Sep/17
I wonder how much the guy on the left weighs. Gotta be over 550 lbs.
JacksonMartinez said on 17/Sep/17
That's very interesting!
The commentator said hafthor has told him to shrink more than an inch through the day since he is so heavy.
Over 6'9 in the morning and 6'8 in the evening.
Seems like hafthor knows the fact of morning and evening height. I think sportsman like him who weights far more than 400 pounds through competition months and less than that through the other months have to know everything about their body stats for health reasons. I am sure they have to measure him a lot.

Probably he really was over 6'8 when he was younger and thinner but now due to his weight he can shrink to a fraction under it but still could be measured over 6'9 in the morning.
That's totally realistic and the fact that he described it so precisely makes it more believable.

Seems like the average guess is way below your estimate Rob.
The lines are probably the reason and aren't the lines more accurate than a guess by you?
I mean you both have very good posture and the camera is at a nearly perfect angle.

Maybe he is only 6'7 max (Afternoonheight)
Editor Rob: he really does seem over 6ft 7 in person though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Sep/17
Rob, who looked taller up close this guy or Tyler Mane?
Editor Rob: Mane could look extremely tall up close, granted there was a good difference in sneaker, I would say he certainly looked at least as tall as hafthor...who of course is also very tall, he's taller than Nairn today up close!

nairn 4-5 years ago - when he could still stand tall - looked taller than hafthor.

Thor is nearer to the cam than Bill Walton. Bill Walton has more shoe in this picture.
Going by the lines here in the pic with Rob, I would say Thor is 200cm max. That would put Bill Walton to 205 or 206.
That's realistic. Their claims don't matter als long we have these lines from Rob.
These lines are not lying.

Aswin MK said on 17/Aug/17
Rob - I am quite surprised that you state his height as 6 foot 7.75 as he is clearly a foot taller than you. For example, his head alone would be 11+ inches not just 10 inches as shown in the scale. Your head is also clearly an inch below the bottom of his head (11 inches of his head + 1 inch = 12 inches). He is easily 6 foot 8 at the minimum.

@Shane: I sorta understand where you come from with the argument but many outside here don't know that method and many also don't give it a thought to go out of their way to measure themselves waking up (except us nuts here on celebheights!!!). I can see the appearance of height but the number itself that one claims is just that a claim. Guess it all depends on ones perception of how tall 6'2" really looks. Me personally unless with maybe a bit more footwear that isn't noticeable I'd guess you 6'1" maybe 6'1.5 (since we're close to 3" apart) but at that point I'd just say he's probably rounding up which most people at that point do in fairness. Depends on what time others measure I guess too as to what they will claim

@Rob: I Agee with that on compression. No doubt. I guess it's just different philosophies. I believe true height is the tallest height one can measure barefoot. So if he can measure 6'9" at any point in day I count that as his true height. I know some see it differently. I'll by the way Rob, can you please check your youtube messages and write me back ? Thanks
Editor Rob: sadly, I no longer check youtube, the last time I did there was about 100 spam comments about motobolla secret or some secret program, I think there is about 5 of these on the go in youtube.

6'9" in shoes is my guess. 6'8" barefoot early in day.

@Rob: If you think Thor is possibly 6'9" in the morning, why do you have him listed under 6'8" (which I believe he is, minus shoes). If he can measure 6'9", he's 6'9". :)
Editor Rob: guys his size have greater potential to shrink 1-1.5 inches through the day.

Yeah, Brian Shaw is not 6'8" as he claims. He's shorter than Hafthor who is himself under 6'8"
I'd say Brian at best is 6'7", but he is likely 6'6.5"
Arch Stanton said on 17/Apr/17
His diet is insane, like half a kilo of fish or meat every two hours, his intensines are permanently digesting food. He eats 6 kg of food a day and nearly 1 kilo of pure protein. Like The Rock, what he eats is generally healthy, generally meat/fish, eggs and greens, but it's incredibly excessive when you need to eat huge meals every two hours to maintain body mass. He's what, 30 stone now?

420-450 pounds??? Extremely unhealthy. He's putting his life at major risk getting that big. Over 350 pounds is already too big, but 450 is asking for an early grave.

Yes it is. My buddy, who is naturally a big guy, weighed 301 lbs at his heaviest(5'10.5" tall). His doctor told him he needed to get down to 200lbs at most. He dropped to
250lbs, but has a long way to go. The weights that some of these guys are is just too much for good health.

How old is Hafthor's granddad? 207 cm is about 6'9.5. He currently looks about 6 ft 7. I doubt he was ever a legit 6'9.5, possibly he got measured at that in his prime in shoes and was more 6'8.5. His father looks like he could have been a strong 6'8 when younger too. How many guys could claim to have a 207cm grandad who is 6 ft 7 even in old age LOL? One in 100 million?

His dad looks like a giant Adolf Hitler LOL. Can't see any facial resemblance to his dad but you can see that his height is clearly genetic!
Supermanfan380 said on 5/Apr/17
During the announcing of Europe's strongest Man this year Colin Bryce mentioned that Hafthor told him he wakes up at 6'9" in the Morning but his extreme body weight causes him to lose over an inch throughout the day. Actually everyone loses height throughout the day. Anyhow Hafthor has a long torso in relation to his height, and likely very thick vertebra as well. The Cushioning between the bones is probably also thick, and there is a lot that can compress throughout the day, so I see this as very plausible. This would also make Rob's estimate pretty spot on when he met Hafthor.

6'9" morning and just a pinch under 6'8" by noon.
Editor Rob: it is believable he is 6ft 9 on wakening.
Jackson Martinez said on 1/Apr/17
The guy on the left is his father. In an Interview he said he is 6'9" to 6'9".
The guy on the right is his grandfather. He said that he was 207cm when he was young.
On facebook he mentioned his current height is 6'7. Click Here
It's the comment from Reynir Ásgeirsson.

On the picture you have posted his dad and his granddad have both an inch more shoe because Thors shoe has nearly no sole.
My guess for them is
Father: 6'7.75" - 6'8.25"
Son: 6'7.5 - 6'8
Granddad: 6'7
Duhon said on 31/Mar/17
This is Harthor with his dad and uncle I believe Click Here How tall do you estimate them to be?
Johno said on 13/Mar/17
Depends on what angles your viewing Shaw and Thor; at the Arnolds and on many occassions on the stage where Shaw and Thor brushed past each other and Thor looked larger. I know he measured his weight at 195kg a few backs on the scales with shoes on and then he later he stated 205kg; so he is somewhere between 195kg - 205kg and Shaw has never put his weight above these boundaries.

If you look closely, Thor has noticeably larger calves and thighs, so this is where the extra weight might be.
A Man said on 10/Mar/17
Thor and Shaw look the same height there. Thor usually comes out about half an inch taller.

It wouldn't surprise me if Thor weighed 452 lbs at the moment. You can tell he's put some mass on, he's got a belly now. It does make me wonder what Brian's weight actually is. He always claims 420-430 lbs when he's competing but he looks heavier than Thor. It wouldn't surprise me if he was up in the 470-480 range in reality.

Ive always wondered if lifting some of largest weights in the world would result in early adulthood shrinkage for guys thors and shaws height.
Rob do you think these guys could end up shrinking in their early 30's? I myself lift 200-250kgs on a weekly basis so i am interested if theres been any studies done.
I think hathor wakes 6'9 and ends up about 6'7 at his low
Editor Rob: I think by late 30's some big lifters might suffer, through wear and tear or 1 disc having damage.

Remember a guy like Tom Daley at 21 was saying how he has disc bulge and degeneration in another because of his training, and he's a diver, not lifting big weights, but rotation elements caused him problems.
Ice said on 10/Feb/17

Around 6'6" is quite impossible. Sorry, but this guy is not below 200cm.

6'6" would put Ben Revere at 5'6" max. This is impossible.
He is listed at 5'9 and is similar to Robs Height.

A lot of spam in your post saying that he must be a liar because he is an actor and a strongman.
These athlets train harder than anyone else. And I guess you know that the lines represent his barefeet height.

By the way Rob:
Yesterday he mentioned to be 192kg (423 lbs) on his facebook channel.
He looks very very big right now.

Going by many comparisons -depending on his actual weight- he is at least 6'7.5.
So why is he a liar when he claimed 6'8 in many interviews?

If you notice in the Photos with Big Show, Show has himself positioned a lot closer to the camera than Olivier. Also, if you notice in the photo of them talking to each other, Olivier is looking down, and Show up. This looks like a good case of Show out angling. Wrestlers are well aware that in a photo with a taller person they need to get closer to the camera. Those photos are not so good for telling height differences. Good example of this is the 3 guy picture with Hafthor, Ragnar Nathanaelsson, and Egill Jonasson. You would think Ragnar was the taller, but in actually it is Egill my 1cm.

I saw a strongman video where he claims 6'8''. 6'9'' is probably a listing in shoes from when he played basketball. both his father and grandfather are around the same height which I think is pretty need. he was encouraged to do strongman after being spotted in the gym by an icelandic strongman legend who said he had the biggest bone structure he had ever seen
MacReady said on 3/Jan/17
Yeah 'just because', I saw that on The World's Strongest Man. Considering Thor's height and huge body weight I find it believable that he could drop over a inch through the day. So his claim of 6'9'' (out of bed) may be true.
It's such a shame he missed out on the title yet again; he has the required massive strength, but just needs to work on his technique and application.

I'd agree with that. I'm the same age as him (a couple of months older in fact), and when I found out he was actually younger than me I couldn't believe it. Looks easily in his late 30s.

Same with Eddie Hall though, he's only 6 months older than Thor and he looks well into his 30s as well. Part of it's due to the size of them, but the lifestyle must surely provoke accelerated aging as well.

Richters only looks 7' there with the tallest guy from NL. 3 inches difference.

Next to Big Show I would have said 7'1" and if that Schelts guy is 6'10" then again he looks 7'1".

I saw a few more pics with Hafthor and to be honest it looks more 5 inches difference.

So Hafthor at 6'7" would make Richter 7'0 and 6'8" would be 7'1".

So the listing here is good, Richter could fall between 7' and 7'1". Ofc a big guy like that probbaly wakes easily at the 7'2" mark so its not like he is lying.

Khali here was probably at his largest and he had some massive legs to; probably around 170-180kg at less than 10% bodyfat and a legit 7'0 or so, was probably the most largest muscular man ever. Some were taller and some heavier but for share combination, i reckon he was hard to beat.

Big Show and Andre would have been close but if they had to cut, i doubt they ever had more pure muscle mass than Khali.
Johno said on 2/Dec/16
Mr Richter is certainly impressive. He seems to be filling out his height and that is pretty difficult for his height. He does not look to far off The Great Khali's bodybuilder days and he seems just as tall, maybe slightly shoter than Khali. Khali still the tallest/largest bodybuilder ever. He used to have madive legs aswell as upper body when he was in his 20s but obviously due to his condition he could not train legs later on.
Johno said on 2/Dec/16
Richter looked a good 4-inches or so shorter than Netherland's tallest man who is 7'3 or 7'4 i think?

Thats weird he is now 416lbs and 6 9 who knows maybe he is growing..
He is taller than Brian shaw who claims 6 8 but looks under 6 7.
They claim an average of 6 3 and he ##$$$!# towers most like 6 ftrs or less.
These guys are always hurting their back and legs so he wont be that tall for long.
Should watch him try to do regular sports it hilarious!
Hope he makes it to real cinema always had a crazy theatrical presence.

Doubt WSM lie, they don't have to, unlike wrestlers. Brian Shaw is a legit 6'8" and Thor is slightly taller in some match ups in WSM. 2015 deadlift round they congratulate each other and Thor is definitely ~1" taller. Oberst is considerably shorter than both and probably 6'6".

Terry Hollands lives literally 15 mins down the road from me Medway UK, have been to his gym and Terry is a legit 6'6, and again, some WSM rounds Terry is next to Thor. He is 6'8 minimum.

Its possible ofc considering the listing. Funny thing is Hafthor has claimed numerous times 6'8" and was also listed 203 cm during his basketball days but they still insist on him being 6'9" - 206 cm.

His country uses metric and he has never claimed 206 cm , its always been 203- 204 cm.
tomato said on 2/Oct/16
I put him at 204 cm so at least the full 6 ft 8 in.
S.J.H said on 22/Sep/16
Up here hafthor atually look 26.5cm-27cm zone taller than big rob. If rob usually stand like 173.2-173.4cm in his video then Hafthor is really a solid 200cm to 6'7 not sure if he can stretch up the extra 0.75 in person. 6'7.75 stays a myth as i wonder how would peter crouch look next to rob..
Ice said on 16/Sep/16
Funny how Oberst claims 6'8 when he's clearly below the 200 cm mark ..
leoberg124 said on 10/Sep/16
It seems Sun Ming Ming, he is 236 cm (7'9")

He's huge...
Johno said on 22/Aug/16
Rich Piana, would be lucky to be a strong 5'10. He is a 5'10 at best. Wears some massive boots.
Bard said on 18/Aug/16
Looks a solid 6'7, maybe a little more.
Teutonic Titan said on 15/Aug/16
Robert Oberst is 6'06", or so his college roster listing says: Click Here. Given that, it is easy to see Hafthor is 6'08" plus. Besides, Hafthor and his trainers have always said he was 205 cm (80.71").
A Man said on 11/Aug/16
Oberst always claims 6,8" but he's nowhere near. 6,5.5" max I'd give him.
MD said on 8/Aug/16
I've heard that Piana is lucky if he's 5'11". The six-foot claims are total bunk.
leoberg124 said on 6/Aug/16
Bjornsson and Piana. Piana is estimated 183-185 cm. Can Bjornsson look 6'8"?
Click Here
It seems Oberst has short neck. If Oberst 6'6", can Bjornsson look more than 6'8"?

@Jeff and Rob
The guy next to Hafthor is famous professional physique competitor Jason Poston.
He is listed as 174cm (5ft 8.5)
Leonardo 173cm said on 2/Aug/16
He looks two meters with you, 6'7.25 is a better estimation than about 6'8.
Jackson Martinez said on 1/Aug/16
Ok, thanks for the reply
Videos like this are very good to catch attention.
"Versus Videos" or "Top10 Videos" seem to be very popular in modern culture :D
Maybe in future you could fill them with more content although it's just a hobby.

Isn't the comparison with this two pictures a bit unfair?
You're standing much better with Thor then with Nairn. Big Bad Johns pictures show that there wasn't a 2inch differnece between them,
even back in the days when Nairn could stand his full height.
I think that your estimate about Thor is very accurate. 202 - 203 cm is my guess also by going through many comparisons and no lower than that.
And for Nairn max 206cms a few years ago (maybe taller than that in his younger years) and a few inches shorter than that today.
Editor Rob:
The listings on this site are basically still more what I am thinking, in videos (which are just a little bit of visual entertainment and I wanted to keep quite short) you can say a person looks over a certain height range...

it's also a way to reuse some older content.
Jeff said on 29/Jul/16
Would 5'8 be a good estimate for the guy in the cap next to Thor? I've seen him listed at 5'10 but he seems to be reaching just under Thors chin, same as you.

Click Here
Editor Rob: I would have said he looked taller than me, but it might be possible Hafthor dropped a bit more height, hard to say exactly though. 5ft 9 might be possible.
TJE said on 28/Jul/16
Why not just leave him at 6'7.5 if he can look anywhere between 6'7 and 6'8?
Editor Rob: maybe it is better to go with the upper end of a guess than the lower.
Jackson Martinez said on 27/Jul/16
Hi, in which Video is that?
Rob, isn't a downgrade needed after your helplines?
Editor Rob: I was trying to show that Nairn is taller in person than Hafthor.

The lines are a guide, but in many cases I feel are pretty accurate, in other cases though a celebrity can look shorter/taller than they suggest.
I do think he is over 6ft 7, but maybe not a full 6ft 8.
Clive said on 26/Jul/16
Why in your video do you say he is 6'7-6'7.5?
Editor Rob: it's what he can look.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Jul/16
About 201cm imo,so just over 6'7.
mrtguy said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, The Mountain's head isn't small or very large for his height, Up close if you were to compare his head to Nairn it wouldn't be a big difference.
leoberg124 said on 16/Jun/16
Koklyaev 6'3-6'3.5 (191-192 cm) and Bjornsson looks 4-4.25 in. taller, he can be 6'8.
Click Here
Jackson Martinez said on 1/Jun/16

I think Robs Guess seems very accurate.
I also met him once even though I was not close to him. He seems very very tall and large.
But you have to admit that a man who is almost 6'8 is very tall.

Surely he wakes around 6'9 or more, but I think due to his mass he could shrink to 6'7.75.
The lines show him as 6'7.25 but like Rob already said: It's just a guide and in real life and on photos wihth taller people (6ft+) he seems close to 6'8 to him.
Declan said on 31/May/16
Thor when he first came on the scene at wsm was billed at 6'10, and now at 6'9. I've met Thor and he is atleast 6'9 no doubt. He is very wide and muscular which isn't typical of such a tall guy, that's why people are trying to rob him of a few inches lol!
Sam said on 27/May/16
I take it that he's still behind the mask as Franken-mountain in the current GOT season...I was thinking for a moment they had Whyte step in again (he's now credited for digitally capturing Wun-Wun the northern giant). They do a good job making Thor seem even taller than he really is in crowd scenes.
Lord Beerus said on 23/May/16
Now he looks 6ft7.25. Before, in this picture he looked 6ft7.75. Rob what happened did you cut off part of his head in this picture.
Editor Rob: the lines were too thick, this is a more accurate representation, although it is still a guide.
Damian said on 14/May/16
Jackson Martinez
Would you compare his size and physique with people like the Big Show or King Kong Bundy?
He doesn't appear as big or almost as big as them. He is a big dude, but not a giant whale or an elephant.
Although, he does appear he could look 6ft7.5 barefoot, and if he stood taller than he is in this photo, possibly 6ft8, but I wouldn't go anything above that.
pedro builder said on 13/May/16
Saw him at the worlds strongest man. He is 6'9.5" at least, he is taller then Ryan Shaw who is 6'8" another monster.
Johan said on 4/May/16
He looks 6'7.5" with the lines. Im sure a guy that size does indeed wake at 6'9".

Next to 6'1" range guys shown by Rob on this page he is minimum 6'7.5" and closer to this listing.
Sixseven said on 2/May/16
On this picture he appears under 2 meters Interesting.
S.J.H said on 30/Apr/16
I check out enough of hafthor picture else where i believe rob listing is accurate but only in the morning he could hit this range slightly over 202cm and hold a strong 201cm mid day
Jackson Martinez said on 20/Apr/16
he was actually 185kg, when he won the Arnold Classic Brasil a few weeks ago. This is more than 400 pounds.
And to his height.
You can not go only by Robs Helplines.
With taller people, le looks at least 6'7.5. Even nearer 6'8.
6'7 1/2" is maybe the lowest for him, but surely not under it.
Damian said on 17/Apr/16
I think he is about 6ft7, and with his hair makes him look about 1/2 an inch taller than he actually is. If he was more than 6ft7, forget it his head isn't more than 10 inches. By the way rob, but we're his legs and knees slightly bent when this photo was taken. Lol, he says he is 379lbs, which is more honest than what other affiliations list him as. Yea, I doubt his more than 400lbs, no way.
James B said on 14/Apr/16
Jackson Martinez- well to be fair Hathor reaches 6'7.5 under the helplines but that is with the 'slight' help of his cm thick hair.

If he had shaved his hair of he defo would look no higher than 6'7 or maybe 6'7.25 under the lines.
Jackson Martinez said on 12/Apr/16
after you did this helplines:
would you still say, he could be measured more than 202cms?
Editor Rob: I think it is still very likely, in person I would have guessed over 6ft 7 flat up close.
James B said on 11/Apr/16
Rob I think hathors legs are spread apart further than yours
Editor Rob: unless it was a wide stance it barely has any effect, I demonstrated once in A video and did the measurement to show the kind of range of stance where you don't get much difference...
Johan said on 11/Apr/16
Again there was a footwear swing. Tyler mane had a 0.5-0.6 in advantage on Rob and here the footwear with Thor is equal. Mane looked in the 6'7" range and Thor is at least 0.5 inch talller because of less shoe .
mrtguy said on 10/Apr/16
S.J.H said on 8/Apr/16
Hafthor look closer to tyler mane 6'6.75 to 6'7 not sure about the extra 3/4 given what's wrong?

I don't see Hafthor under 6'7''

Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 1/Apr/16
Yes, this guy is a big man for sure. I can believe this listing.
Ice said on 27/Mar/16
ROB would he edge out Brian Shaw ?
Editor Rob: the odds might be in Hafthor's favour.
mrtguy said on 22/Mar/16
Rob, can you see Thor waking up at nearer 6'10'', he lifts very heavy weights and I think I think he can lose near 2 inches in a day compared to the average man??
Editor Rob: yes, it is far more likely a guy of his stature would lose over an inch.
berta said on 22/Mar/16
HI Rob it would be fun if Magnus samuelsson was added on celebheights. The strongman.
James B said on 19/Mar/16
Yeah not over 6'7 under the scale.
Jackson Martinez said on 25/Feb/16
@A Man

Agree with all that heights:
Big Z 190-191cm.
Eddie hall 187cm
Mike Burke almost 198cm, Terry Hollands a bit under it.
and Robert Oberst 198cm.

except for Thor and Brian Shaw.
Brian Shaw sometimes can look 202cm.
and Hafthor can look 203cm (a full 6'8) in some comparisons.
Johno said on 25/Feb/16
Although u believe, Thor would be no taller then 6'7 or Brian Shaw 6'6.25 in the evening though.
Johno said on 25/Feb/16
@Agreed A Man but only if Rob is his average height of 5'8.5 or early morning height.
A man said on 22/Feb/16
Doesn't surprise me that Thor isn't 6,9". WSM inflate heights just like the WWE does.

Here's what I reckon for all the big boys:

Thor 6,7.75"
Brian Shaw 6,7"
Big Z 6,3"
Eddie Hall 6.1.5"
Mike Burke 6,5.75"
Terry Hollands 6,5.5"
Robert Oberst 6,6" (but laughably claims 6,8")
