Suzy Favor Hamilton

Suzy Favor Hamilton once clocked in as the fastest female middle-distance runner in the world. But after an epic fall on the track at the 2000 Olympics, her career was over. She worked to build a life outside of running, but struggled with undiagnosed bipolar disorder. Her private life became shockingly public when reporters revealed that she was working as an escort in Las Vegas. Suzy talks with host Chamique Holdsclaw about how she finally got a productive diagnosis, and worked to reclaim her own story.
