Kyrgyzstan competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia from 7 to 23 February 2014.

The country's delegation consisted of one skier, Dmitry Trelevski who was scheduled to compete in his second consecutive Winter Olympics.[3] The team also consists of four officials.[4][5] A total of $1,980 USD was earmarked to help support Trevelski in his preparations after he qualified.[6] According to Nurdin Sultambayev, State Agency for Physical Education and Sport (GAFKS) spokesman, "winter sports are the most expensive out there" and Kyrgyzstan lacked the money to fund a larger team".[7] However on February 12 during training runs Trelevski was injured seriously, that he had to withdraw from the competition.[8] The National Olympic Committee replaced Dmitry Trelevski with Evgeniy Timofeev after petitioning the International Olympic Committee.[8]
