The news was riveting and delivered by none other than four-time World’s Strongest Man winner Magnus Ver Magnusson:  “Hey Randall - Guess what,  Hafþór just won the comp!!!”

“Benedikt second !!!!!!!!!!,” Magnus Ver Magnusson’s message continued, as he relayed the big upset from yesterday's Strongest Man in Iceland contest.

So there you have it, from Magnus Ver Magnusson himself,  confirms both Magnus Ver’s status as a strongman talent scout and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson’s status as a strongman on the rise.

Magnus Ver Magnusson: Icelandic Strongman Scout

“Hey Randall - Here is a picture of my new Icelandic strongman giant!!!,” four-time World’s Strongest Man winner Magnus Ver Magnusson emailed to IronMind’s Randall Strossen today.

“I found him last year.  He is 21 years old and is over 170 kg now . . . Give me a call.”

Magnus Ver Magnusson is president of the Federation of Icelandic Strongmen and he told IronMind, “I have four contests coming up.”

Let’s start with the Strongest Man in Iceland, which is June 5 in Grindavik, during an Icelandic national holiday called Fisherman’s day. With a bronze statue of Jon Pall Sigmarsson and major bragging rights going to the winner, it’s a truck pull and then deadlift for reps followed by Atlas stone for reps, Circus dumbbell and farmer’s walk/super yoke medley.

“Among competitors,” Magnus Ver Magnusson told IronMind, “are Benidikt Magnússon, the big lion Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Páll Logason, Orri Geirsson, Ólafur Valur Guðjónsson, Úlfur Orri Pétursson, Sturla Ólafsson, Heiðar Geirmundsson and Jón Þór Ásgrímsson.”

Hafthor Julius Bjornsson used to play basketball, Magnus Ver said, and the two met shortly before Magnus Ver Magnusson opened his gym, Jakabol.  A knee injury ended Bjornsson’s basketball career, Magnusson said, but he seemed like a good prospect for strongman.  In fact, Bjornsson broke two Icelandic records in the stone carry last year, Magnusson said, and, along with gaining about 35 kg of body weight since their initial meeting, Bjornsson is now deadlifting 350 kg.

“In two years, he will be really good,” Magnusson said of his latest find.

Jakabol: Magnus Ver Magnusson Launches New Gym
by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. | ©2010 IronMind

It's in the in the city center area of Reykjavik, but don't think Magnus Ver Magnusson's new gym is anything but focussed on the gritty side of the training world: powerlifting, strongman, and boxing.


The name Jakabol, "strongman's nest," harkens back to Iceland's mighty roots in the strength world. Photo courtesy of Magnus Ver Magnusson.


Explaining that such Icelandic strength world legends as Jon Pall Sigmarrson and Hjalti Arnason originally trained in "an old place the city gave them . . . it was called Jakabol, which translates to something like "strongman's nest," Magnus said, explaining that he wanted to honor that tradition by picking up the name. "I am going back to the roots, so it's fitting to put that name on it."

Best known as a four-time World's Strongest Man winner, Magnus Ver Magnusson - in good Icelandic tradition - was no slouch as a powerlifter, and this Saturday Jakabol will be hosting a WPC competition. Asked why he was holding a WPC contest instead of an IPF event, Magnus Ver explained that he inherited the presidency of WPC Iceland from a friend of his and that was the reason why. Incidentally, Magnus Ver mentioned that Benedikt Magnusson is slated to compete, which means a big deadlift is very likely to happen so show up and have your cameras ready . . . even a modest number by Benedikt's lofty standards would likely be an impressive weight for just about anyone else.

Still somewhat rough, the gym will be open during peak traffic hours, Magnus Ver Magnusson said, and that members will have keys so that they can train whenever they want to.

"I own so many weights, so much strongman equipment - I have been collecting stuff and just keeping it stored . . . I have been thinking about this for a long time," Magnus Ver told IronMind.

Jakapol is located at Tverholt 19 and the doors open at 9:00 on Saturday, with the contest and cocktail reception following later that day.)
