ASPEN, Colo. -- The Canadian Olympic freestyle team may be without one of its top medal hopefuls.

Skicross racer Julia Murray tore ligaments in her knee during training last weekend but is hoping to compete in the Vancouver Games, the Canadian Ski Cross Team said Sunday in a release.

Murray, of Whistler, B.C., suffered a partial tear of her anterior cruciate ligament, a grade 1 tear of her medial collateral ligament and a tear of her medial meniscus. She accompanied the team to Colorado for the Winter X Games, where they continued with her rehabilitation.

According to the release, Murray has seen a significant reduction in swelling around her knee, along with improved range of motion. She will be returning to Canada early next week to consult with Dr. Bob McCormack.

Murray is ranked fourth in the World Cup standings, behind Ophelie David of France and Canadians Ashleigh McIvor and Kelsey Serwa. Murray, the daughter of former Crazy Canuck skier Dave Murray, has two podium finishes this season.

The Olympic women's skicross event goes Feb. 23.
