Three-time Olympian runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted leading a double life as an escort. She apologized Thursday after a report by The Smoking Gun website said she had been working as a prostitute in Las Vegas. The 44-year-old Favor Hamilton lives in Madison, Wis., where she won nine individual NCAA titles as a standout middle-distance runner for the Wisconsin Badgers. She was named Athlete of the Decade in the 1990s by the Big Ten, and the conference's female athlete of the year award is named after her. The Smoking Gun said she has been working for the last year for an escort service.
