Liberal International Pancake Race

The Annual International Pancake Race took place in Liberal on Tuesday.

Keeping up with tradition, every year people in Liberal and Olney, England enter a friendly competition that has been going on for 60 years.

This year's winner was Tasha Gallegos, with a time of 57.5 seconds.

She scorched her competition from Olney, where the winning time was 62 seconds.

Legend has it, 500 years ago a woman engrossed in using up cooking fats (forbidden during lent) was making pancakes.

Hearing the church bells ring calling everyone to the service, she grabbed her head scarf and ran to the church, skillet and pancake in hand.
