Nice try, it's not easy for action night shots. the 1st is good, but the second shutter speed was too slow, and you'll need a stronger flash.
Feel free to correct me, (i'm learning too)

I think the problem with the second one is due to misfocus.The camera focused on the background instead of the skater.In the first shot you can see the opposite , as the background is out of focus,while the skater looks sharper.Few tips:

-Get a sturdy tripod
-Use an external flash(if you have one)
-Set the autofocus in the camera to Continuous AF
-Use a wide aperture
-Use a higher ISO
-Position yourself in way that your subject would stand out from the background so you would have less focus problems.(For example shoot from a low angle in order to have the sky as a background)

Hope I helped.Cheers!

Shuttertime won't affect flash exposure, just ambient exposure ;)
Also, if the flash is your main/only light source, your could use 1/30th and still get sharp pics (the flash freezes action).

Also experiment with rear curtain sync ;)

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".
