Twenty-four swimmers have been officially nominated to the Japanese team to compete in the Worlds, including defending champion Daiya Seto in the 400 m individual medley and Olympic medalists Ryosuke Irie, Ryo Tateishi, and Natsumi Hoshi.[2] Japan's rising superstar Kosuke Hagino was set to compete, but later withdrew from the team due to elbow fracture.[3]
