Nice Power-Half!

Awesome picture, but forgive me--curiosity is killing me.

Did you strobe this match? I'm looking to do some wrestling at my high school next year and I noticed this season that they usually have the "one huge spotlight" setup that doesn't put out enough light. I'm looking to use my 550, but then there might be ghosting problems or whatnot since I don't think it can blast away powerfully enough over ambient.

Yes, I light everything possible. My light allows me to ignore available light. Ghosting only occurs when the synch speed is slow and available light is relatively bright.
I place the strobe on the bleacher's top row and use a Pocket Wizard to fire it. This is important because many officials don't allow direct flash.
