Who is Takemi Nishibori?

When it comes to beach volleyball, Japan is probably not a country that most people associate with the sport of beach volleyball. Most people think about countries such as the United States or Brazil. But Japan also has its share of talented beach volleyball athletes. Takemi Nishibori is a female Japanese professional beach volleyball player. Born on August 20, 1981 in Hiratsuka, Japan, Nishibori now resides in Kanagawa. She is known by her nickname of “Take”. Standing at five feet and seven inches tall, Nishibori has had partners Miwa Asao and Satoko Urata in her career so far. Her earnings with Asao have totaled $10,300 and her earnings with Urata have been a total of $9,400. Recently, Nishibori has also played with partner Sayaka Mizoe.

Why is Takemi Nishibori a star athlete?

Playing with Miwa Asao is quite an achievement in itself because Asao herself is considered to be the sexiest beach volleyball player in Japan if not the world. Asao retired from beach volleyball competition in 2014. To date, Nishibori has participated in 6 matches so far earning over $4,550. Her best international finish is 13th and the most she has earned is $19,775. In 2007, Takemi was featured on a very exclusive list. She was part of Askmen’s list of beautiful beach volleyball women. And it is easy to see why. She’s got some really nice eyes and the kind of figure that would make men wonder in awe.

As of 2015, Nishibori has played in 14 matches, winning a total of $14,600 in total prize money. She has amassed 1,030 points and is currently ranked #62 in the world.
