Krystal Rae mastered her figure skating routine to win two medals at the recent Australian Masters Games in Adelaide.

The Casula resident won a silver medal in the technical competition in the Bronze Ladies 30-49 category. She backed up to win a bronze medal in the artistic competition in her second tilt at the Masters games.

The Liverpool Catholic Club Ice Skating Club member performed her routine to the song Everybody wants to rule the world utilising a variety of elements including a combination spin, flip jump and step sequence.

"I have been working on the routing since February so it was exciting to win two medals," she sad.

"The rink was a bit smaller than International size so I had to adapt the program to make it fit."

Rae, who won a silver medal at last year's ISU International Adult Figure Skating Competition in Vancouver, has been skating for the past decade. When she started there was only four adult members of the club. This year there are 35.

The registered nurse hits the ice up to five times a week in between work commitments at Westmead Hospital. Her next competition is the Liverpool Catholic Club championships.

"I want to encourage adults to exercise and play sport and I am proof with hard work you can still achieve great things at any age," she said.
