Chinese Taipei competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia from the 7 to 23 February 2014. The Chinese Taipei team consisted of three athletes in three sports,[3] including short track speed skating and speed skating for the first time ever.[4]

Since 1984, athletes from Taiwan have competed at the Olympics as "Chinese Taipei" due to political reasons. Even though the country's name is Taiwan (Republic of China), due to opposition from the China, they compete under a different name.[5]
