In this Nov. 3, 2012, file photo, Suzy Favor Hamilton, a former U.S. Olympian, dances on the stage at the finish line after competing in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Savannah. The three-time Olympian admitted Thursday to leading a double life as an escort — a job choice that one sports psychologist said Friday was likely Favor Hamilton’s way of getting her kicks by “being a bad girl in contrast to her image as an upstanding Olympic athlete.”
