Liberal has won the International Pancake Race in this the 60th year of the competition.
Tasha Gallegos, a former WSU track athlete from Liberal, sets a new record with a time of 57.5 seconds to smoke the competition from Olney, England where Jane Hughes had a time of 62 seconds.
According to legend, the Olney race started in 1445 when a
harried housewife arrived at church still clutching her frying pan
with a pancake in it. Liberal challenged Olney in 1950 after seeing
photos of the race in a magazine.
