At the 2010 Pan Pacs in California, she defeated the Olympic Champion Natalie Coughlin, to claim Gold in the 100m Backstroke. Her performance in the 200m Individual Medley saw her not only claim Gold in Championship Record time but her time became the fastest 200m IM that year and the 2nd fastest time in history, in a textile suit. Seebohm went on to claim a further four Silver medals in the 100m breaststroke, 50m butterfly, 4x100m freestyle and the 4x100m medley relay where her lead off leg, broke the 100m backstroke Championship Record.
