United States snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington was able to claim the gold medal in the ladies halfpipe on Wednesday and her strong performance has caught the attention of many people around the nation as they attempt to learn more about America’s new golden girl.

Farrington has a unique story that all began by selling cows to fund her Olympic training, but despite being an Olympic champion she is a normal person just like the rest of us. That is clear after learning Farrington is a huge fan of the HBO hit show Game of Thrones, and now HBO has whipped something up to congratulate her on her big win.

HBO tweeted out an image of Farrington’s very own house sigil, which pays tribute to her success in the mountains:

For a Game of Thrones fan, having your very own sigil is as good as it gets.

Between receiving that and earning Olympic gold, I’d say Farrington has to be stoked about the past few days she has had.
