MADISON (WKOW) -- Former U.S. Olympian and UW-Madison track star Suzy Favor Hamilton has apparently led a secret life as a $600-an-hour escort in Las Vegas.

In a recent story on thesmokinggun.com, Hamilton admits to working for the escort service, calling it a "huge mistake."

She said on Twitter that she never thought she would be exposed.

"I have been seeking the help of a psychologist for the past few weeks and will continue to do so after I have put things together," she said. "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. I fully intend to make amends and get back to being a good mother, wife, daughter, and friend."

Hamilton is a three-time Olympian and has worked in recent years as a motivational speaker and has done promotional work for groups and organizations. 

Hamilton was a star high-school athlete in Stevens Point and later in college at the University of Wisconsin. She and her husband still live in the Madison area.
