KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Alpine Canada says Marie-Michele Gagnon dislocated her shoulder during a fall in the slalom portion of the Olympic super-combined.

Gagnon was trying to make up time after a disappointing downhill run Monday when she straddled a gate and fell face first into the snow. She got up holding her left arm.

Without specifying which shoulder she hurt, Alpine Canada tweeted that Gagnon is "day to day but hopes to keep on competing" at the Sochi Games.

Gagnon isn’t scheduled to compete in the downhill on Wednesday, although she was hoping to race the super-G, giant slalom and slalom.

Gagnon won the only World Cup super-combi this season for her first career victory.
