The British Virgin Islands competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, which took place between 27 July to 12 August 2012. The country's participation in London marked its eighth appearance at the Summer Olympics since its debut in the 1984 Summer Olympics.
The British Virgin Islands delegation included two track and field athletes, 100 meter sprinters J'maal Alexander and Tahesia Harrigan. Harrigan reprised her role to be the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.
Alexander failed to progress through the heats whilst Harrigan was eliminated in her event's quarter-finals. This meant that British Virgin Islands won no medals at this Summer Olympics.
Athletes from the British Virgin Islands have achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event at the 'A' Standard, and 1 at the 'B' Standard):
|J'maal Alexander||100 m||10.92||4||Did not advance|
|Tahesia Harrigan||100 m||Bye||11.59||7||Did not advance|
