Olympic runner leads a double life as a high-priced Las Vegas escort.

Sound like a good book?

Suzy Favor Hamilton is set to release a memoir titled “Fast Girl: Running from Madness” in June, according to HarperCollins. The publisher gives no details about the autobiography but Favor Hamilton certainly has a lot of material from which to draw.

The three-time Olympian revealed in 2012 that, after her athletic career ended, she became a call girl charging clients up to $600 an hour.


“I cannot emphasize enough how sorry I am to anyone I have hurt as a result of my actions and greatly appreciate the support from family and those closest to me,” she posted on Twitter. “I fully intend to make amends and get back to being a good mother, wife, daughter, and friend.”

Favor Hamilton talked about her reasons for becoming an escort:

“I 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. It provided an escape from a life that I was struggling in. It was a double life.”
