pancake final
LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) — An English runner won the 65th annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race, again beating the winner of the southwest Kansas leg of the race. The Leader and Times reports 20-year-old Devon Byrne of Olney, England covered the 415-yard course in a record time of 55.61 seconds. Byrne beat 25-year-old Summer Parsons, who won the leg of the race in Liberal, Kansas six hours later with a time of 63.5 seconds. It was Byrne's third win in a row. Byrne's mother, Leslie Byrne, also was a three-time winner of the competition in which Olney and Liberal women in aprons and head scarves run the course with a pancake in a pan. Olney has won the race 28 times, and Liberal has 36 wins.
