Olympian says she worked as an escort in Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A famous former Olympian has been leading a double life as an escort right here in Las Vegas.
A report by The Smoking Gun on Thursday revealed that three-time Olympian runner Suzy Favor Hamiltion has been working as an escort in Sin City.
The 44-year-old lives in Madison, Wisconsin but has spent time working in Las Vegas, Houston and LA over the last year.
When the story broke, Favor Hamilton released a series of tweets saying in part that she was "drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life."
The Smoking Gun says the story came to light when Favor Hamilton was approached in the lobby of a Las Vegas hotel.
She admitted to using the alias "Kelly Lundy" as an escort.
