Krasnaya Polyana, Russia ( - Canadian alpine skier Marie- Michele Gagnon suffered a dislocated shoulder Monday during her slalom run in the women's combined at the Sochi Olympics.

Gagnon dislocated her left shoulder when she straddled a gate and fell, the Canadian Olympic Committee said.

She said she hopes to keep racing in her second Olympics.

"I really want to show people that you can overcome obstacles and still do great things," said Gagnon.

Last month, Gagnon became the first Canadian to win a World Cup race. She was 21st after the downhill portion of the combined Monday before crashing out of the slalom.
