Chris Mazdzer’s girlfriend and sisters went all out in supporting him at the Olympics.

Mazdzer’s family made the trip to South Korea to watch him compete in the luge, where he won silver in the men’s singles, becoming the first American male to win a medal in the event.

Anyone watching the event certainly noticed the three women who were holding giant cardboard heads of Mazdzer while watching him compete. They had sports bras on and were decked out in stars and stripes outfits. Those were Mazdzer’s two sisters, Sara and Kate, and his girlfriend, Mara Marian.

According to USA Today, the sisters supported Chris at the 2010 Olympics with the same outfits and asked Mara if she wanted to join them this year. She agreed, as you can see.

The support clearly means a lot to Chris, who credited his friends and family for giving him the energy he needs.

“It’s all in the mentality,” Mazdzer said in an interview with NBC. “I was so comfortable with who I am. I had to go through those ruts to be comfortable with who I am without results. Basically, as a human, I’m comfortable with where I’m at. I know what I can do, I know what I can give to the world. I was just so relaxed knowing that. I was really at peace with myself. No matter what happened, I have an amazing group of friends and family that are there to support me. I think they gave me tons of energy for this.”
