Welcome to the Guinness World Records Italian Show – a weekly video series which features the most astonishing, shocking and awe-inspiring record attempts from the seventh series of Italy’s Lo Show Dei Record.
This week’s episode sees Game of Thrones actor and strongman Hafthór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson (Iceland) compete head-to-head with the 2014 world's strongest man Zydrunas Savickas for the Fastest power stairs (3 x 225 kg) record.
Zydrunas takes home the title after hauling three 225 kg weights separately up five steps in a rapid 31.60 seconds.
Each 225 kg weight is three times the weight of the average man.

This comes after the pair went head-to-head for the Fastest 20 m carrying two fridges record, with Thor winning the title in an impressive 19.60 seconds.
