The following is about the qualification rules and the quota allocation for the alpine skiing events at the 2014 Winter Olympics.[1]

Qualification rules[edit]

Quotas[edit]

A maximum of 320 (later adjusted to 350 by the International Ski Federation) athletes are allowed to compete at the Games. A maximum of 22 athletes per nation will be allowed to compete with a maximum of 14 males or 14 females from a nation being permitted.

A standard[edit]

The A standard entails a competitor to be ranked within the top 500 in any event on the FIS Points list which will be made public after qualification ends on January 20, 2014. The qualification period begins in July 2012.

B standard[edit]

NOC's who do not have any athlete meeting the A standard can enter one competitor of each sex (known as the basic quota) in only the slalom and/or giant slalom events. These athletes must have only a maximum of 140 FIS points on the FIS Points list on January 20, 2014.

The Points List is calculated by taking the average of five event results for technical events (giant slalom and slalom) and three events for speed events (downhill, super g and super combined).

Allocation of quotas[edit]

Basic Quota

Every NOC will be assigned one male and one female quota spot meeting the B standard.

Top 500 on Points list

Every NOC with at least one male and/or female in the top 500 of any event will be allocated one additional male and/or female quota in addition to the basic quota.

Top 100 on Points list

Every NOC with at least one male and/or female in the top 100 of any event will be allocated one additional male and/or female quota in addition to the basic quota and top 500 quota.

Top 30 on Points list

Every NOC with at least one male and/or female in the top 30 of any event will be allocated one additional male and/or female quota in addition to the basic quota top 500 and 100 quota. If an athlete is ranked in the top 30 in more than one event a second additional quota for that sex will be given or if two different athletes are in the top 30.

Remaining quotas

The remaining quotas will be assigned using the Olympic Quota allocation list on January 20, 2014. The spots will be assigned until a maximum of 320 quotas are reached including the above. When a nation reaches its maximum, remaining athletes from that country will be skipped over. The list is a table of athletes in the top 500 in their three best events (including both male and female athletes).

An athlete can be counted only once for the above five criteria. For example, if a country has only one athlete meeting all five criteria then only one quota will be given (not 4).
