Hungary competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, from 7 to 23 February 2014. A team of 16 athletes competing in five sports were selected to the team.[1]

Before the Games began, the Hungarian Olympic Committee received a threatening letter which warned of an attack on its athletes at the Games. It was dismissed as not being credible.[4]

Alpine skiing[edit]

According to the quota allocation released on 20 January 2014, Hungary had three athletes in qualification position.[5] Edit Miklós's 7th place finish in the women's downhill set a new record as the highest placing alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics for the country.[6] As for Anna Berecz, she was remarked for being one of the few, along Tina Maze and Macarena Simari Birkner, to complete all the five races in which she competed.
