Born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland, Thor demonstrated athletic promise from a young age. A standout basketball player in his teens, Thor would go on to play for several semi-professional teams in Iceland until an ankle injury forced him to retire at age 20. At 6’ 9” and over 400 pounds, Thor knew he had the drive and physical prowess to succeed as an athlete, but it wasn’t until a chance meeting with legendary Icelandic Strongman Magnus Ver Magnusson in 2008 that the idea began to take shape. Ver Magnusson recognized Thor’s potential as a strongman and mentored him as he took up training for what was still a fledgling, but growing sport.
