Thanks guys!

Sharp images are a combination of several factors. All of which have to come together as you press the shutter release.
Timing; working quickly to anticipate a split second in advance, where the subject will be in your frame.
Following focus; it is what it says it is. Practice this on fast moving objects. IE, cars, bikers, runners, etc.
Shutter speed; make sure you select a shutter speed fast enough for the subject movement AND the focal length of your lens. A good beginning rule is to match, or exceed, the shutter speed to your focal length. IE, 200mm lens = 1/250th sec.
Tripod; A good solid tripod is so very critical to sharp images. Get one and use it. I would suggest one with a Ball Head. A tripod also will force, and allow, you to slow down and pay attention to all of the elements I have mentioned above.
Hope this helps.
Bob
