Interesting take on the challenge.
Compositionally, this shot is okay. The cheetahs are in the lower half of the frame which makes it feel balanced, and the two visible ones are not centered but in the right hand running left, so there is room for them to go. The tail on the left is a bit distracting, but funny. What may have made it even more humorous is to chop part of the tail of the one to the far right. To me, then , it would look like the sides of the picture would 'match up' in a rather humorous juxtaposition.
Technically, the shot is a little soft and needs a touch of contrast or saturation, I think. Also, the trees in the background seem to be slightly tilted to the left, just a touch making it seem as if they are running down hill (perhaps they are).
As mentioned before, I find this a creative, interesting approach to the challenge. It is not a sport as we know it, but rather one that is being played by non-humans. Unfortunately, that may have hurt in some of the scores.
Nice work, and if I need to further explain or clarify myself, please feel free to contact me.
