Despite coming in as a short course World Champion, Seto was still coming into the championships relatively unknown, mostly due to Japanese medley star Kosuke Hagino. He once again came in with the schedule of swimming both medley events. In the 200 m, his first event he swam a personal best in the semi finals with a 1:58.03, and then finished a touch slower the next night to finish seventh overall. In his final and best event, the 400 m individual medley Seto qualified first for the final and then surprised everyone when he won his first long course world champion title by finishing first in a time of 4:08.69, about half a second ahead of second place finisher Chase Kalisz. He is the second fastest Asian performer in the event, behind Hagino.
