Team Singapore athletes Salbiah Bte Zakaria, Phil Anthony Labramonte Razo and Suhairi Bin Suhani brought home four gold medals between them. The trio were part of a contingent of Singapore athletes that were in Pyeongchang, South Korea for the 11th Special Olympics World Winter Games last month.

They were given a hero's welcome home at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2 after a huge success at the Games, particularly in short track speed skating.

The Special Winter Olympics is a multi-sport tournament where children and adults with intellectual disabilities compete in Olympic-type sports.
