Sports mode should work under lots of good light. If it doesn't and you have an adjustable camera, try setting it to aperture-priority mode, ISO 1600 and the lowest f/number. This will assure you get the fastest shutter speed for that given light and ISO. Take a shot. To reduce blur further, adjust ISO upwards. Be warned that the higher the ISO, the more noise or grain the picture will have. Below is a picture shot at ISO 12800.
