2014 Sochi Olympic logo

1 Feb 2014 – New Zealand has no curling team competing in Sochi.

Countries qualify for the Olympics directly or indirectly via the Men's and Women's World Championships. The NZ Men's fifth place at the 2012 World Championships earned them 8 points but they did not qualify for the 2013 event, so finished ninth overall in the Olympic qualification table. The top seven secured an automatic place in the Sochi line-up with hosts Russia. The remaining places went to the top two teams at December's last-chance Olympic Qualifying Event where the Kiwis finished fifth.

The New Zealand Men's team have competed at one Winter Olympics, in Turin in 2006.

No NZ Women's side has qualified for a World Championship, so they have never had the opportunity to earn Olympic qualifying points.
