TORONTO -- Mogul skier Philippe Marquis has been added to Canada's Olympic freestyle ski team.

He replaces Calgary's Megan Gunning, who injured her knee while attempting to qualify for the X-Games.

Marquis, from Quebec City, missed qualifying for the Canadian team on Sunday by one position, finishing eighth in moguls at a World Cup event in Val St-Come, Que.

Marquis will join his teammates at a pre-Olympic camp in Tignes, France.
