Aori Nishimura, 16, comes into XG Minneapolis 2018 as the defending gold medalist in Women's SKB Street. The Tokyo-based skater is making a name for herself as a fierce competitor and a hardcore street skater (she's even sponsored by Deathwish Skateboards and is a member of the Nike SB team), but she admits to loving the Japanese boy band Generations and American pop music like One Direction and Justin Bieber. Surgery on her left ACL in Oct. 2017 kept her out until July 1, when she returned at Dew Tour Long Beach.
