For some events you won't stand a chance.

Beyond 400m you will lose.

No. Not a chance. Perhaps a true 0% probability. I simply didn't start training early enough.

Similarly, even in the mental domain, I can only introduce people to the game of Go.

I appreciate the beauty of the simplicity. But some who I introduce to the game beat me after the introduction exercises.

I played Division I soccer in college (my 20's), and could probably beat a USMNT player if they had 6 months of complete inaction. It would only be because physically I would be quicker and in better shape then they would be at that point in time. I was never good enough to be a professional, but might be good enough given your parameters.
