September 16, 1981) is a sprinter from the United States Virgin
Islands who specializes in the 100 and 200 meters. Jones-Ferrette
represented the US Virgin Islands at the 2008 Summer Olympics in
Beijing competing at the 100 metres sprint. In her first round heat
she placed third behind Kerron Stewart and Ezinne Okparaebo in a
time of 11.41 to advance to the second round. There she failed to
qualify for the semi finals as her time of 11.55 was only the fifth
time of her heat, causing elimination. She further improved her 100
and 200 meter national records at the Grande Pr mio Brasil Caixa
meeting in May 2009. Breaking both records in just over an hour,
she ran 11.18 in the 100 m and 22.49 seconds in the 200 m. She
competed at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics but she just
missed out on making the 200 metres final. Jones-Ferrette made a
strong start to 2010, building up to the 2010 IAAF World Indoor
Championships by running the fastest 60 m time recorded in eleven
years. Her time of 6.97 seconds made her the sixth fastest woman
over the distance and even she was surprised to have run such a
quick time. ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=1300896
