Year: 2012

This story is probably the craziest of them all, mainly because the athlete in question wasn't busted with a prostitute, but actually was a prostitute. After the news began to leak that former U.S. Olympic track star, Suzy Favor Hamilton, had been working in Vegas as a high-end call girl, Hamilton herself came out on her Twitter account and admitted that the stories were true. Working under the name, "Kelly Lundy," Hamilton would charge $600 an hour for her services, and lived something of a double life between the time she spent in Las Vegas, and that which she spent with her family in Madison, Wis. A former student-athlete at the University of Wisconsin, Favor Hamilton had previously been the namesake for the Big Ten Conference's Female Athlete of the Year award but, in the wake of her admissions, her name was stripped from the honor.
