Two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas was honored in her hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia, with a mural on the side of a sports bar.

The mural was painted on the side of AJ Gator’s Sports Bar & Grill in Virginia Beach and took four days to complete, according to The Virginian-Pilot.

Brothers Todd and Eric Lindbergh painted the 30 feet by 8 feet mural and included the words “Way to go Gabby” in gold capital letters. Douglas is painted in excellent detail and depicted smiling while holding a gold medal, with an American flag in the background.

It’s safe to say Gabby was a fan. She tweeted to say she was “so honored” by the mural:

@miiss_ashley: awesome mural here in VB for @gabrielledoug !! twitter.com/miiss_ashley/s…” WOW!!! This is amazing!! #sohonored ❤❤

First it was a cereal box, and then it was a mural. What’s next for the golden girl?
