Random Pic: Waiting for the Results

Edited 5pm 10-22-2014 to correct a mistake about exactly when the photograph was taken.
This photo was taken of jouster and videographer Ben van Koert during Arundel Castle International Tournament 2014. The photo shows the tense moment where two teams were tied for second place, and therefore it was unclear who would go through to the final to meet England (who was clearly in first place).

When Ben saw this photo posted online, he wrote:
"This really captured the tension of that moment!
A tie in the team scores and three ties in the individuals.. This is the moment we were waiting for the results to be announced.
What a picture!

Just after this picture was taken, it was announced that Ben's team, the Burgundian Alliance, had earned the other place in the final. Ben and his teammate, Per Estein Prøis-Røhjell, went on to win the Team Championship of the tournament.
