By now, Nadia you are fully aware that the problems lay with your setup, not your equipment. As you note, sports shooting is quite a demanding field. If your arena is typical of amatuer rinks, the lighting is going to be marginal under the best of circumstances. I'm posting not to add to the advice about upping your shutter speed for sports; I think you got it by now. I just wanted to say as a continually frustrated sports shooter myself, don't be discouraged by the people who attempt to berate you for having quality equipment when you still have a long way to go to fully utilize it. Practice every opportunity you get, appreciate whatever advice you can get, and familiarize yourself with the demands of your chosen shooting environment and you'll be ok. Ignore those who carry on as if you have no right to possess the equipment you own.

There is nothing wrong with it, but would someone who has never played an instrument before buy a steinway grand piano? Anything up to £50,000.

Seems a little silly doesn't it...You earn the right to use professional gear. You just look daft playing chopsticks badly on a steinway...it's the same thing. But hey people will do what they want, I don't mind. In my view, you earn the right to use the pro gear as you grow.
