Samantha Edwards (born 14 January 1990) is an Antigua and Barbuda sprinter.[2] She competed at the 2014 and 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships.

She was born in the United States and initially represented that country, but after failing to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics she decided to switch her allegiance to the Antigua and Barbuda, her grandfather's country of origin.[3]

Her personal bests in the event are 52.15 seconds outdoors (Petersburg 2012) and 53.01 seconds indoors (Boston 2016).
