It's a glorious time to be a fan of Filipino athletes now, because gold medals and Olympic possibilities have come in waves in recent weeks.

At Malacañang Palace on Wednesday, Olympic weightlifting silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz joined four other sportspeople who have done the country proud recently.

And, like any memorable moments, this didn't go by without a selfie.

 

Diaz (bottom, left), was with Nesthy Petecio (gold medalist, women's world boxing championships), EJ Obiena (Olympic pole-vaulter), Carlos Yulo (Olympic gymnast, and world championships gold medalist), and Eumir Marcial (silver medalist, world boxing championships).

The 5 received additional cash incentives from President Rodrigo Duterte during a ceremony on Wednesday.

Here are other pictures of the ceremony, courtesy of Sen. Christopher "Bong" Go:
