Japan’s Daiya Seto made history in the men’s 400 IM, winning his fourth straight short course World Championships title in the event. Seto touched in 3:56.43, the only swimmer in the field under 4:00. Seto was also just off of his own Asian record of 3:56.33 in the event, and was just under a second away from Ryan Lochte’s world record.

This continues a strong meet for the 24-year old, who broke the world record in the 200 fly on the opening night of the meet.

Australia’s Thomas Fraser-Holmes was second in 4:02.72, just beating out Brazilian Brandonn Almeida (4:03.71).
