A three-time U.S. Olympian has reportedly spent the last year working as a $600-per-hour call girl, a double life she now classifies as a “huge mistake.”
The Smoking Gun reports that runner Suzy Favor Hamilton, 44, has been employed with one of Las Vegas’ premier escort agencies since last December and has booked dozens of “dates” there and elsewhere throughout the United States, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.
Hamilton, who has been featured in a Nike television commercial and ongoing promotional work for Disney, initially denied any connection to Haley Heston’s Private Collection. The married mother of a 7-year-old girl later acknowledged her work as “Kelly,” the website reports.
“I take full responsibility for my mistakes. I’m not the victim and I’m not going that route,” Favor Hamilton told The Smoking Gun. “I’m owning up to what I did. I would not blame anybody except myself.” She added, “Everybody in this world makes mistakes. I made a huge mistake. Huge.”
Hamilton, who used the alias “Kelly Lundy,” shared her true identity with several male clients.
The former Olympian characterized the escort business as “exciting” and a diversion from her Wisconsin real estate brokerage with her 44-year-old husband, Mark, who is aware of her illicit business.
“He tried, he tried to get me to stop,” Hamilton told the website. “He wasn’t supportive of this at all.”
