SWIMMING: Rockhampton 14-year-old Alanna Bowles is showing staggeringly good form during her first international swimming campaign.

On Wednesday night, Bowles peaked in time for the 400m freestyle event at the Tokyo leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup. 

After a several top eight finishes at the Beijing leg of the World Cup last weekend, the Rocky City Swim Club member stormed home to take the bronze medal in the 400m free.

She was up against a world-class field at the short course venue, Tokyo Tatsumi International Swimming Centre.

After leading the field out early, Bowles dropped back to third spot, with New Zealand's Melissa Ingram claiming gold in a time of 4:05.22, and Hungary's Katinka Hosszu touching in second (4:05.33). Bowles was two seconds behind the pair, touching in 4:07.34.

Bowles and the Australian contingent head to Singapore for the final round of the World Cup, which starts on Saturday.
