Congratulations Maggie Lapinski of Liberal, Kansas for Winning the International Annual Pancake Race

A race that has been going since 1950 between Liberal, Kansas and Olney, England was won this year by Maggie Lapinski. She also won the race in 2017. It’s run on Mardi Gras. I saw the results on a local channel website: https://www.ksn.com/news/kansas/liberal-wins-2019-international-pancake-race/1828984353.

Some additional information for those not familiar with this race:

A Shrove Tuesday competition began February 21, 1950, between people in Liberal, Kansas, and Olney, Buckinghamshire, England, creating International Pancake Day. Each year the communities hold a 415-yard race to determine the fastest runner who can also flip a pancake. Typically the fastest runner completes the course in just under one minute.
