The Giants of Iceland

Subscribe to FIGHTLAND: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Fightland Despite its tiny population, Iceland has a reputation in the World's Strongest Man competition that stands higher than perhaps any other country's. This small, black rock in the middle of the ocean has produced a lineage of strongmen dating back to the Vikings. VICE went out there to investigate why this tiny island produces such strong people. Hanging out at Jakabol—a gym run by ex-champion Magnus Ver Magnusson—we met a whole host of Icelandic strongmen, which includes Hafthor "Thor" Bjornsson, the 6'9" star of Game of Thrones.

You know for years, white people used to be hailed as the fastest in the world.. why? Because only white people competed in sprinting... as soon as blacks took up the sport seriously they dominated.. same with boxing.. and similar things are happening in MMA.. blacks are top of most MMA divisions now! if you read your history correctly the vikings were smashed by Arabs in Spain.. but no one will ever tell you that.. Africans are by far the most gifted athletically and strength wise.. as soon as blacks start to take strongman seriously and start participating in big numbers they will dominate strongman as well.. mark my words.. whites only dominate sports they practice.. but it’s been proven time and time again, when more people and races start to compete their dominance is killed.. remember mark Henry, the greatest strongmen call him the strongest who ever lived! Imagine if he dedicated his life to strongman? He’d be to strongman what MJ was to pop music!

Not really bro lol. Black men have certain advantages i will admit. But whites are stronger

All this racism in the comments makes me consider how fucking stupid people can be. You call yourselves the master race and yet cant separate the dumb ass extremists from the good, normal people? Are we committing a crime just by existing? We're people, just like you tryna make our way in the world, just like you. Except we dont hate a certain group just because of the actions of a few extremists. By that logic every white person is trash because of the shit Europeans did in medieval times. I have tons of white friends myself and I'm so glad to see that there are actually people in the world who believe that all men and women are born equal.
