Liberal wins seventh straight
The apron-clad, pancake flipping women of Liberal, Kansas have won their seventh straight Shrove Tuesday pancake race. Jill Wettsein won the American leg with a time of 67.38 seconds for the 415 yard course. The Olney, England winner, Andrea Rawlings, posted a time of 69 seconds. Think about it, 415 yards in under 70 seconds? That's cookin'. Wearing an apron and carrying a skillet of flapjacks, nonetheless.
