Three-time Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton will publish a memoir, Fast Girl: Running from Madness, in June 2015.

Details about the book, to be published by HarperCollins imprint Dey Street Books, are scant beyond the title and publication date.

In December 2012, The Smoking Gun reported that Favor Hamilton was working as a paid escort. After the revelation, Favor Hamilton lost several sponsorships, including ones with runDisney and the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series. In addition, Favor Hamilton's name was removed from the annual award for the top female athlete in the Big Ten, the Midwest athletic conference that the University of Wisconsin, where Favor Hamilton was a nine-time NCAA champion, is part of.

Hamilton, now 46, a U.S. Olympian at 1500 meters in 1992, 1996 and 2000, won four outdoor USA 1500 meter titles and three indoor Mile national crowns.
