The men's 500 metres in short track speed skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics was held between 18–21 February 2014 at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi, Russia.[1]

The qualifying heats was held on 18 February with the quarterfinal, the semifinal and the final on 21 February.

The defending Olympic Champion was Charles Hamelin of Canada, while the defending World Champion was Liang Wenhao of China. None of them won a medal.

Viktor Ahn of Russia won the race, getting the third individual medal in short track speed skating at the same Olympics (two golds and one bronze) and thus replicating his own performance at the 2006 Winter Olympics. No other male short track skater ever won three individual medals at the same Olympics. Wu Dajing of China finished second, and Charle Cournoyer of Canada won the bronze medal.
