Suzy Favor Hamilton, a three time Olympian for the USA, recently revealed she has been living most of the past year working as a $600.00-an-hour escort in Las. Vegas.
An Olympic runner who’s career has included a Nike TV commercial, swimsuit calendar, and lots of promotional work for Disney, Hamilton’s admission comes as a shock.
She says her husband Mark was aware of the work she was doing and “He tried, he tried to get me to stop. He wasn’t supportive of this at all.”
Here is a shot of her page on the escort services website where she was known as “Kelly Lundy”:
Hamilton has been struggling with depression issues for some time now. Her brother Dan committed suicide in 1999 and in 2005 she was diagnosed with postpartum depression and was prescribed the antidepressant Zoloft.
Hamilton admits now that her behavior was wrong. She says she has been seeking psychiatric help for a few weeks and will continue to do so for some time.
She admits that as a world-class athlete she felt invincible, she later made a comparison to Tiger Wood’s tumultuous fall, saying, “I mean, he’s the biggest athlete ever. He obviously though he could never get caught.”
