Hyper-sharp photos from a moving camera of a moving object where the distance between camera and object is not constant are, almost by definition, extremely difficult to obtain. If a gallery exists of photos from another sub-$1000 camera/lens combination that does this better, I'd like to see it.

Now, it's true that moving subject are more challenging than static, but I think a lot of the softness in those images are due to the lens. It's not particularly sharp even when subject is static, and it's focusing isn't reliable either. With 55-200mm I usually take a burst hoping for one more or less sharp image:

Surprisingly, I had a lot better luck with slow focusing Fuji X-E1 and 55-200mm lens:
