HBO made snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington her own 'Game of Thrones' sigil
"Game of Thrones" fan Kaitlyn Farrington won a gold medal for ladies snowboarding halfpipe.
SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Game of Thrones' makers have been paying attention to the Olympics because, as you know, winter is coming, and decided to honor U.S. snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington with her own sigil.
For the uninitiated, a sigil refers to the coat of arms for the noble families of the kingdom of Westeros. Farrington even gets her own motto, "Always having 100% fun," a reference to her signature catchphrase.
Farrington, a 24-year-old snowboarder from Salt Lake City, took home the gold medal for ladies halfpipe on Wednesday.
