Georgia competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia from 7–23 February 2014. The Georgian team consists of four athletes in two sports.[4] The team also consists of seven officials.[5] Georgia's government only decided to send athletes and coaches but no government officials due to the breakup in relations with Russia in the aftermath of the August 2008 war.[4]

Flagbearer[edit]

Originally figure skater Elene Gedevanishvili was supposed to be the flagbearer.[6] However because of training schedules, Gedevanishvili was scheduled to arrive after the opening ceremony. Therefore alpine skier Nino Tsiklauri was selected to replace her.[1]
