On June 23, Ahwatukee Foothills resident Clinton “Flash” Santoro competed at the Grand Canyon State Games, a culmination of Arizona’s finest track and field athletes from high school age and up. His evening covered nearly as many events as a heptathlete as he held his own in the men’s 35- to 39-year-old age group. Flash, 37, garnered victories in the 110-meter hurdles, 400-meter hurdles, 800-meters, 3,000-meter steeplechase and two relays, both the 4x400 and 4x800. Even though a silver in the 1,500 meters was all he could muster, Flash made history and became the first Arizona man to compete in (and win) all three hurdle races in one meet, the shorter ones having been his first attempt at those distances.

He now hones his training with his sights set on multiple gold in the USATF Masters National Track and Field Championship in Lisle, Ill., Aug. 2-5.
