    (August 8, 1968- )
    Born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin
    Middle-distance track runner
    Pan American Junior Championships gold medalist (1,5 km, 1984, 1986)
    Summer Universiade silver medalist (1,5 km, 1989)
    Autobiography is ‘Fast Girl (A Life Spent Running from Madness)’
    During the final lap of the 1,5 km race at the 2000 Summer Olympics, she feigned injury – despite being within seconds of the gold – out of a fear of failing to medal.
    She received the wrong type of antidepressant, which was supposed to be for her bipolar disorder.
    She was not the only family member to have mental illness issues; her brother committed suicide in 1999 by jumping off a building roof.
    Having revealed herself to be an escort prostitute (2012), she would cease to be the namesake for the Female Athlete of the Year award presented by the Big Ten. (Other sponsors promptly dropped her in the process.)
    If her tendons were hampered by the rigors of her training, her adrenaline level certainly wasn’t.
    Since she tended to land on her toes rather than the balls of her feet while running, she would imagine herself as a ballerina — among other things.
    She met her future husband – then a pitcher on the university baseball team – while she was a college freshman.
    She has seven other track and field championships (1,5 km each) under her belt.
    While she married the week after her graduation, she did not have her one child for some two decades.
    She would go on to operate a real estate brokerage in Madison.
    She is a regular speaker at seminars on mental health and eating disorders.
