With the 1-series you can set your minimum shutter for example at 1/1000s in Av, so you can get up to 1/8000s if there is enough light, and like Neuro said, if a player drops in to the shadows or into the sun, you will never have longer shutter than 1/1000s, but always correct exposure.
Pretty sure that's only for the 1DX and even then only with the most recent firmware update. Previous bodies were, for no obvious reason, limited to 1/60th of a second for minimum shutter speed.
No, 1dx always had this function, the 1d4 also has this. "Set Shutterspeed range"
*edit* the 1d3 also has this function.
