Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, or — more simply — Thor is one of the world’s strongest men.
At 6 feet, 9 inches tall, it’s not surprising that he was a professional basketball player in his home country of Iceland. Unfortunately, a knee injury ruined these aspirations, but it did not stop him from winning Iceland’s strongest man competition in 2011 or placing 2nd in the worldwide competition this year.

Vasquez lost control of her car in San Jose, California, driving off the road into a 500 foot ravine, which was so far down that her OnStar GPS system couldn’t locate her.
