F53 - Athletes have full muscle power at their shoulder, elbow and wrist in the throwing arm. Muscle power in the finger flexor and extensor muscles is functional, but there is always some weakness and resulting wasting of the intrinsic muscles of the hand. The grip on the implement is close to able-bodied and force can be imparted to the implement when throwing. The non-throwing hand grips the pole on the throwing frame.. An athlete with partial to full trunk control but with a throwing arm that fits the F52 profile is appropriately placed in this class.
Mexico has the largest Spanish-speaking population of any country in the world. Following the 1910 Mexican Revolution, the center-left Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) governed the country unchallenged for decades until its defeat by the center-right National Action Party in 2000. The PRI regained the presidency in 2012 with the election of current President Enrique Peña Nieto, whose single six-year term of office runs through 2018. After pushing through most of his ambitious structural reform agenda in 2013–2014, Peña Nieto has focused on implementation and on boosting sluggish growth. Rising drug-related crime has resulted in homicides, and widespread corruption has increased public dissatisfaction about the effectiveness of anticorruption efforts by weak government institutions.
