I actually questioned that too and looked it up

I found these and thought they could be viable

http://www.certiology.com/tech-terms/network/100base-fx.html

"The 100Base-FX can be used in a maximum length of 412 meters if being
used in

half-duplex connections or as 2 kilometer lengths in the case of
full-duplex transmissions over optical fiber."

Of course I never have seen one myself
