It looks to me like she is above a puddle in a cave, but I wouldn't expect a puddle to give a good reflection like that.
It also looks like the flash is further away from the camera than her, but her shadow makes it look like the flash is under her.
It also looks like she is nowhere near the mats.
Is it just a mash up of various shots?
Wow, that's properly inspirational!
Its at night (or very dim) so with a still puddle, the reflection should be very clear, as there is not much other stray light around to compete with the reflection.
I expect there are at least two off camera flashes, trying to light her well and bounce light off the roof onto her face to make sure she is recognisable. Only the strongest light source will give much shadow.
She does look a bit like she isn't over the mats, but the video shows that too, maybe she's on an easier bit of the problem that doesn't need matting well. It could be that she's tiny and using big mats, which makes the perspective look odd. The reflection is right where it should be if she is just to this side of the mats.
And what a great effort, well earned after 40 days effort over several years and specific training.
