for the price of the Oly 510 body alone you can get:
- Nikon D40x incl. lens
- Pentax K100D Super incl. DA 18-55mm and DA 50-200mm
- Canon EOS 400D plus EF-S 18-55mm 3.5–5.6
So there are enough alternatives to choose from...
All of those cams have a sensor that is twice as large as the Oly and thus capture twice the light!
And in-camera IS doesn't help, when shooting a fast paced sport. Then you need high ISO/low-noise, fast shutter speeds.
I'd suggest going for the D40x
