Using that logic...

Why arent 400 runners scared of 19.3 200 runners? Surely 19.3 200 runners can jog a 42.0 400 with minimal effort.

It's true, but successful 200m runners get the title of being "fastest in the world" and if they move up to the 400m then they are demoted to "fastest in the world over 400 meters" plus a more painful event.
