increase read period to >10Hz?

I just downloaded the TI SensorTag Library on my Windows 8.1 PC, and successfully executed the Windows Store 8.1 test application from the source code.

While testing the application, I realized that the maximum sampling rate for accelerometer/magnetometer are limited to 10*10 milliseconds (10 Hz) in the Accelerometer.cs & Magnetometer.cs files:
if (time < 10)
                throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("time", "Period can't be lower than 100ms");
Technically, the sensors should be capable of >20ms resp. >12ms update rate (as stated in the user guide), though.
btw: setting the update rate for the gyroscope is not to supported at all?

I would like to obtain higher update rates, in order to use the SensorTag for realtime gesture recognition.
Is there any way to obtain rates >10Hz?

Thanks for your help,
