First, never see coaches react very much, so this makes the photo. The runner heading for home provides context. Second, nice light. Nice shooting something from tennis other than backhands with a 400/600. Third, the body language "says" that this hurt. Nice timing. Other nice photos where photographers were working the light to elevate normal sports photos to more artsy.
