Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is perhaps best known for playing "The Mountain" on HBO's "Game of Thrones," but in May, he also scaled the mountain that is the 41-year-old World's Strongest Man competition, using his 400-pound frame to dominate events like the Car Deadlift and the Truck Pull.

Now, Bjornsson's mountainous victory, which came in the Philippines after years of runner-up finishes, can be seen in complete coverage of the World's Strongest Man series on CBS and CBS Sports Network.

Representing Iceland and topping defending champion Eddie Hall in the 2018 series, Bjornsson is one of 10 final contestants featured in the competition, which, per the New York Times, began in America in 1977 with an appearance from former Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno before expanding to an international stage.

Here's how you can catch all of this year's World's Strongest Man series, including all the anchor-carrying, car-lifting events you can handle:
