70 athletes will compete in the men's competitions in the RusSki Gorki Ski Jumping Center, in the women's individual competition the maximum athletes' quota is 30. The maximum quota per National Olympic Committee (NOC) is five for the men and four for the women.
Competitors who have earned World Cup, Grand Prix or Continental Cup points during the qualification period (July 2012 – 19 January 2014) are eligible. The allocation of quotas per NOC is based on the Olympic Quota Allocation List which is calculated using the World Cup standings, followed by the Continental Cup Standings from seasons 2012/13 and 2013/14 added together.
The allocation is made by assigning one quota place per competitor from the top of the standings downwards until the total of 60 male and 30 female competitors is reached. During this process, once a NOC has achieved the maximum number of five male quota places, respectively four female quota places its remaining competitors will no longer be counted and the next eligible NOC will be allocated a place.
After the allocation of 60 male quota places has been made, in the event there are less than 12 NOCs with at least four competitors allocated quota places, the next NOC with three allocated quota places will be allocated an additional quota place to enable the NOC to participate in the Team Competition. This allocation will continue until there are 12 NOCs with four competitors. Thereafter, if there are any remaining places, they will be allocated until the total of 70 competitors is reached.
After the quotas were published on January 20th, the NOC's have to confirm the use of the allocated quota to the International Ski Federation (FIS) by January 22nd. Quota places that are not taken up will be re-allocated by FIS from January 23rd until January 24th to the next eligible NOC.
