Her participation in Beijing marked her second Olympic games, as she also participated in the 100 m and 200 m in the Athenian 2004 Summer Olympics.
LaVerne Jones-Ferrette also participated in the 200 m dash. On August 18, she was placed in Heat 6 of the first round, completing the event in 23.12 seconds and ranking fourth place out of eight athletes. Jones-Ferrette was 0.04 seconds behind Cuba's Roxana Diaz, and was 0.29 seconds ahead of Brazil's Evelyn Santos. Jones-Ferrette ranked 16th overall out of 48 athletes. Jones progressed to the August 19 second round, and was placed in Heat 1 against athletes that included Jamaica's Veronica Campbell and the Cayman Islands' Cydonie Mothersill. Jones-Ferrette placed seventh out of eight with a time of 23.37 seconds. Overall, LaVerne Jones-Ferrette placed 24th out of 32 athletes. She did not advance to semifinals.
The Virgin Islands Olympic Committee sent a total of 7 athletes to the Games, 4 men and 3 women, to compete in three different sports, tying the record (two athletes and sports less for each) set by Beijing. Two athletes from the Virgin Islands had competed in Beijing, including sprinter and three-time Olympic athlete LaVerne Jones-Ferrette. Track runner and Olympic semi-finalist Tabarie Henry was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.
The race was expected to be a duel between LaVerne Jones-Ferrette and Carmelita Jeter who had run some of the fastest times for many seasons at 6.97 and 7.02 seconds, respectively. In the first round of competition Myriam Soumaré was the surprise winner of the first heat, Jones-Ferrette clocked the fastest of the day in her heat with 7.14 seconds, while Veronica Campbell-Brown and Jeter topped their qualifiers comfortably. Ruddy Zang Milama of Gabon was another surprise in the final heat as she beat the more experienced Sheri-Ann Brooks and Mikele Barber.
She took part in the 2008 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia, Spain. She reached the semi-finals of the women's 60 metres competition, running a personal best of 7.26 seconds to finish behind LaVerne Jones-Ferrette and outside of qualification. In March 2009 she was entered into the European Athletics Indoor Championships and she equalled her personal best to finish fifth in the 60 m final. The following month she competed at the 2009 European Weightlifting Championships in Bucharest and she finished twelfth in the women's 53 kg category, completing a snatch of 71 kg (a Swedish record) and a clean and jerk of 85 kg.
George represented Grenada at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed for the women's 200 metres. She ran in the sixth and final heat against seven other athletes, including Jamaica's Sherone Simpson and LaVerne Jones-Ferrette of the Virgin Islands, both of whom were heavy favorites in this event. She finished the race in sixth place by two hundredths of a second (0.02) behind Brazil's Evelyn dos Santos, with a time of 23.45 seconds. Although she was ranked below four qualifying places, George advanced into the next round of the competition, based on her performance in the heats. George, however, fell short in her bid for the semi-finals, as she placed eighth in the fourth heat of the quarterfinal round, with a time of 23.77 seconds.
Another sprinter Laverne Jones-Ferrette ran the fastest 60 metres in a decade in February, but was absent from outdoor competition in 2010. This was later explained by the revelation that she had failed a drug test for clomiphene on February 16. The substance can be used as a complement to steroid cycles, but can also act as a fertility drug and Jones-Ferrette (who announced her pregnancy in November) claimed this was the intended usage. She was banned from competition for six months, lasting from April to September, and lost her silver medal from the World Indoor Championships. Bobby-Gaye Wilkins won a relay medal for Jamaica at the same championships, but she was also stripped of her medal after testing positive for andarine – a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM).
Her fast times were a double-edged sword in that they brought as much suspicion as they did appreciation. At age 30, Jeter had improved her personal record by over a third of a second within a single season and she ranked between Jones and Griffith-Joyner in the all-time lists. Given the history of the women's sprints and speculation about performance-enhancing drug use, Jeter said "I can't be upset about those questions [but] It's unfortunate that I work this hard and I don't get the credit I should get". She improved her 60 m best to 7.02 seconds to win at the USA Indoor Track and Field Championships. This was still slower than LaVerne Jones-Ferrette, and Jeter resolved to improve further for the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships.
The United States Virgin Islands competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics, which were held in Beijing, the People's Republic of China from August 8 to August 24, 2008.

Of those, John Jackson and Tabarie Henry progressed to a post-preliminary event, and Henry reached semifinals in his own. There were no Virgin Islander medalists at the Beijing Olympics.
At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing she competed at the 100 metres sprint. In her first round heat she placed first in front of Ezinne Okparaebo and LaVerne Jones-Ferrette in a time of 11.28 to advance to the second round. There she improved her time to 10.98 seconds to win her heat in front of Lauryn Williams and Kim Gevaert. With 11.05 seconds in her semi final she won the race and earned her spot in the Olympic final. In a remarkable race with fellow Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser taking the gold, Stewart and Sherone Simpson both finished in 10.98 seconds to share the silver medal and to complete the Jamaican sweep. Together with Fraser, Simpson, Sheri-Ann Brooks, Aleen Bailey and Veronica Campbell-Brown she also took part in the 4x100 metres relay. In their first round heat (without Simpson and Stewart) they placed first in front of Russia, Germany and China. Their time of 42.24 seconds was the first time overall out of sixteen participating nations. With this result they qualified for the final in which they replaced Brooks and Bailey with Simpson and Stewart. Eventually they did not finish their race due to a mistake in the baton exchange.
