DSLR and lens for low light action

I have an old Canon Rebel that can't handle low light situations, such as indoor swim events. I will need to shoot swimming action shots and portraits for few years. I want to find a used Canon or Nikon body and a lens that will work for these low lit pools. I want to be able to shoot at fast shutter speeds of course.

Looking at a used Canon 7D with a Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens or a Nikon D5300, D5500, D5600, or D7000 with the same lens. This lens is a manual focus. Is this workable for action sports photos?

My budget is around $500-$600.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
