The team relay luge at the 2014 Winter Olympics was held on 13 February 2014 at the Sliding Center Sanki in Rzhanaya Polyana, Russia.[1] This was the inaugural event of the team relay at the Olympics.[2] The competition was won by Germany. Russia and Latvia won silver and bronze, respectively.[3]

On December 22, 2017 Albert Demchenko and Tatiana Ivanova of Russia were banned for doping violations. Results of the Russian team were voided.[4] They successfully appealed against the lifetime ban as well as annulment of result at the court of arbitration for sport, and on 1 February 2018 the results were restored.[5]
