Mensagem:  That's good. I hope you understood the word "starter" in this context. In sports the coach has to decide which players or atheletes to use at the beginning of a game (or at the start of a relay race) to give his team the extra strength to move ahead of the adversary. The object is to use the best players right away in order to get as many points as quickly as possible. In a relay race the starter and the finisher usually make or break the team. So, the lady in question was the starter with a jet propulsion system!!
