ICENETWORK: Change of scenery puts Nagasu on solid ground
2010 OLYMPIAN PRACTICING TRIPLE AXEL UNDER TUTELAGE OF ZAKRAJSEK
Only in the rarified air of a few elite sports — or a modeling agency -- would a 21-year-old woman refer to herself in terms befitting a grizzled veteran without a hint of irony. But figure skating is one of those sports, and a still-young Mirai Nagasu has been there, seen that, read the hype.

The Manley Woman Skate Cast: Episode #78: Tom Zakrajsek
July 2014 - An interview with Tom Zakrajsek. Tom competed in Men’s Singles and Pairs, then became a judge. But he’s made the biggest impact as a coach.
Proprioception (/ˌproʊpri.ɵˈsɛpʃən/ pro-pree-o-sep-shən), from Latin proprius, meaning "one's own", "individual," and perception, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement.
In humans, it is provided by proprioceptors in skeletal striated muscles and in joints. It is distinguished from exteroception, by which one perceives the outside world, and interoception, by which one perceives pain, hunger, etc., and the movement of internal organs. The brain integrates information from proprioception and from the vestibular system into its overall sense of body position, movement, and acceleration.
The word kinesthesia or kinæsthesia (kinesthetic sense) has been used inconsistently to refer either to proprioception alone or to the brain's integration of proprioceptive and vestibular inputs.
