X-Games Minneapolis 2019 wrapped up today and the women's street finals were mind blowing - just like the rest of the weekend!

On the street course, Japanese skater Aori Nishimura was the highest scorer in Women’s Skateboard Street - marking her second gold and fourth medal in the discipline. Nishimura’s tricks from her second and winning run included a kickflip up the Euro gap, backside 50-50 180 out, frontside feeble grind on the downbar, full cab, gap to lipslide on the hubba, 180 up the Euro gap and a backside lipslide on the big rail. Eleven-year-old Momiji Nishiya added to the list of Japanese medalists from the weekend with silver, and defending gold medalist Mariah Duran was bronze.

“I didn’t practice my last trick at all during practice, I just threw it in there and just committed and I guess it paid off.”

Watch the entire women's street finals below, or scroll down to the end of this article to watch the podium runs only!

Leticia Bufoni hasd to pull out after her second run due to problems with a rolled ankle and for a while there it looked as if SLS 1st place finisher from last week, Rayssa Leal, would make the podium but unfortunately her scores got pushed down the leader board in later runs.

All the women were pushing hard and scores were going back and forth, which made for a great contest to watch!
