Sabina Schulze (born 19 March 1972) is a retired German swimmer who won a gold medal in the 4 × 100 m freestyle relay at the 1986 World Aquatics Championships, setting a new world record. Two years later she won a gold medal in the same event at the 1988 Summer Olympics.
Schulze was born in a family of track and field athletes. Her father Jens Schulze and mother Karin Rüger-Schulze competed in high jump, and the mother took part in the 1964 and 1968 Olympics. Her brother Thomas specialized in shot put, but Sabina and another brother Michael went into swimming. After marriage she changed her last name to Kessler.
She should not be confused with Sabine Schulze, a German swimmer who also won a gold medal in the 4 × 100 m freestyle relay, setting a new world record, but at the 1970 European Aquatics Championships.
