Despite his disability, Wei Soong went to a regular school, where he was treated like everyone else. It was a big life lesson on the importance of equality, and instilled values in him that he applies both to sports and life beyond the pool. In 2015, he won three gold medals at ASEAN Para Games in front of his home crowd. Continuing to power his way to success after success, he has recently won a bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast, Australia.
