Sarah featured in Nike Dream Crazier Ad
Nike launched a new ad last week with the tagline “If they think your dreams are crazy, show them what crazy dreams can do” #justdoit. Sarah is featured in the opening shot demonstrating all kinds of emotions surface in the world of competitive sports for women as well as men. The ad also features superb, celebrated and inspiring athletes including Simone Biles, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Chloe Kim, members of the US Women’s National Soccer Team and Serena Williams.
Dream Crazier shines a spotlight on female athletes who have broken barriers, brought people together through their performance and inspired generations of athletes to chase after their dreams.
This follows a spotlight video of Sarah’s “Crazy Dream” of competing and finishing the Hawaii Ironman one more time this last year in 2018.
Here is the text from the video voiceover:
If we show emotion, we’re called dramatic. If we want to play against men, we’re nuts. And if we dream of equal opportunity, we’re delusional. When we stand for something, we’re unhinged. When we’re too good, there’s something wrong with us. And if we get angry, we’re hysterical, irrational, or just being crazy.
But a woman running a marathon was crazy. A woman boxing was crazy. A woman dunking, crazy. Coaching an NBA team, crazy. A woman competing in a hijab; changing her sport; landing a double-cork 1080; or winning 23 grand slams, having a baby, and then coming back for more, crazy, crazy, crazy, and crazy.
So if they want to call you crazy, fine. Show them what crazy can do.
