Suzy Favor Hamilton stole the headlines on Thursday when she admitted that she had spent the past year or so working as a high-priced Las Vegas escort.
The idea of a three-time Olympian degrading herself the way Favor Hamilton obviously did divided folks.
Some heard her justifying the deed as a method of coping with depression and “‘exciting,’ an illicit midlife diversion from her routine existence…” and were sympathetic; others weren’t as understanding. Both sides had valid points, though, and both -- for the most part -- kept the discussion frank and serious. After all, depression and prostitution are both serious topics.
And then the New York Daily News came long.
On your mark, get set, ho. We'd expect nothing less.
