Wheelchair curling at the Ice Cube Curling Center, during the 2014 Winter Paralympics

The wheelchair curling competition of the 2014 Winter Paralympics was held from 8 to 15 March 2014 at the Ice Cube Curling Center in Sochi, Russia. Ten mixed teams competed.

Qualification[edit]

Qualification for the 2014 Paralympics was based on rankings in the 2011, 2012, and 2013 World Wheelchair Curling Championships.[1] The qualification points are allotted based on the nations' final rankings at the World Championships. The points are distributed as shown in the table below. The nine countries with the most points were to qualify for the Sochi Games, while the tenth slot was reserved for the host country, Russia. Because the Russian team placed within the top nine point-scorers, the tenth slot was given to the tenth-ranked team, Finland.

Final rank 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Points 12 10 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
