Former Olympian admits double life as prostitute

CharlotteObserver.com—December 21, 2012

It can be problematic for athletes in sports like track and field to transition into daily life after devoting their careers to a rarely held event like the Olympics, which often provides only a glimmer of attention and no prolonged financial safety net, said Jordan D. Metzl, a sports physician at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

“It can be a difficult psychological proposition to put an entire life’s focus into one week and then drift into obscurity,” Metzl, who has treated Olympic athletes but not Favor Hamilton, said in a telephone interview Thursday. “That’s a lot of pressure.”
