OLYMPIAN SAGE WATSON PARTNERS WITH TRU47
Why The Red Lips?
My name is Sage Watson, and I am a professional track athlete and Olympian. I am the 2017 NCAA Champion for the University of Arizona in the 400H, Olympic finalist, 2x world finalist, Pan American champion and Canadian record holder in the 400H. As an athlete I want to feel my best when I step on the start line. When I’m feeling my best, my confidence is high, which is why I started to wear red lipstick when competing in races. I continued wearing the red lipstick and wore it to make my very first Olympic team! After my heats at the Rio 2016 Olympic my red lips received international attention. I was receiving messages from all around the world!
To this day I wear my red lipstick for every race it has become part of my uniform, part of my get ready ritual but most importantly it gives me that extra bit of confidence I need. My message that I want to share with others is find what makes you confident, because when you feel confident you give yourself the power to become the best version of yourself!
In July 2021, I am off to Japan to race in the 2021 Summer Olympics to represent Canada in the 400 Meter Hurdles. Wish me luck! You will recognize me as the girl wearing the red lipstick on race day!
As a part of my training, I relocated to Tucson Arizona to train at the University of Arizona. In 2020, during the pandemic, we were required to train in masks, which was very difficult in most masks because it is hard to breathe. A local Tucsonan referred me to TRU47, 99.99% Pure Ionically Plated Silver Mesh Masks. I had to try one – and what an amazing difference it made in my training. I reached out to Sharon Whiteley the founder, and shared my story.
The TRU47 team loved the idea of creating masks with red lips in support of me and my message to encourage confidence in others. So, they created two styles – one with full red lips, and one with a kiss on the cheek. In addition, they created a special SAGE MASK MIST and Skin Toner.
I wanted to give back to a local organization that helps women with empowerment.
It’s a win-win when you purchase any of these three items, 20% of the proceeds will be donated to a non profit dedicated to empowering women and girls.
Thank You Tucson and TRU47 for your support!
