ABC 20/20 reveals the shocking secret of Suzy Favor Hamilton, the beautiful Olympian track star who loved running, sex, and escorting in Las Vegas. That’s the feature story for tonight’s episode. The news magazine, known for bringing you the most cutting-edge true stories, will go deep into the case of the successful U.S. Olympian whose life down spiraled so far out of control that the married mother had sunk to escorting and working as a sex worker in Las Vegas.

Here’s the back story. Hamilton was already suffering in her marriage and had become disillusioned with her life. Running gave her what she needed by day, but by night she needed something far more exciting—and her husband was not giving her what she felt that she needed at the time. All it took was one trip to Las Vegas to show the mother how exciting life could be while working as a professional escort. The lavish gifts, the extravagant trips, and the $600 payments per client kept her going back for more.

Before long, she was traveling back and fort—fulfilling her obligations as a runner, and then returning to Las Vegas in the evening to have sex with high-paying clients for money. Meanwhile, her marriage started to crumble, leading her husband to demand that she leave the home due to the effect that it was having on him and their child.

She was able to keep the shocking secret under wraps for a while, but her whole world came tumbling down in 2012 after a client recognized her and exposed her secret to a journalist who went out to Las Vegas to investigate her. According to ABC News, when she saw the journalist, she knew that she was in a world of trouble.

“I about wanted to just die at that moment, because I knew. I knew that name, and I knew my life was probably over.”

In tonight’s episode of ABC 20/20, Suzy will reveal that she got the idea to become an escort after she and her husband celebrated their anniversary in Las Vegas, an anniversary that included a threesome sex romp and a professional escort. That moment awakened an intense sexual drive within her. After being exposed by a client, she decided to seek help. It was then that she discovered that the drugs to treat her bipolar disorder had triggered the hyper sexual feelings. It was an abrupt realization, but she was relieved to finally put a name to all of the chaos that was going on in her life. The hyper sexual activity and the mania was now explainable and treatable.

In an interview with People, Suzy Favor Hamilton stated the following.

“My bipolar was driven toward sex. It could have been driven towards drugs and alcohol, or gambling. I found sex was the biggest high to fuel my mania, which is common with bipolar people. So you do crazier and crazier things, but you see no craziness in them.”
