The Olympus E-M1 has 1/320 sync speed, so mirrorless cameras can do that...

Also has literally half the distance to travel, so there is potentially twice the maximum amount of time the whole sensor can be exposed for. It has nothing to do with 'being mirrorless' and everything to do with using focal plane shutters (which incidentally are made by only a couple of companies, they are not made by Sony at all).
