Woah! Those high ISO shots look great! Thanks for sharing. I have a K20D and have always been disappointed with it above ISO 200. A friend even jumped ship and went to Canon because of the K20D low light performance.

But to get back to the main post. You don't have to have high shutter speed for good sports shots. The main thing is to be able to follow the action. I've seen great sports shots well below 1/60s and the motion blur around the subject adds to the appeal of the shot.
At the same time they are very selected photos that were easy to "clean", though swimming shots should be okay.
