At only 20-years-of-age, "Harry" as he is affectionately known, is Venezuela's main attacking weapon. A powerful attack near the net as well as from the back zone and an excellent service are his strongest weapons and since making his international debut at the tender age of 13 he has proven to be Venezuela's ace card.
Standing at only 195cm tall, Gomez has never come up short on court. He was the best scorer of the Intercontinental Rounds of the 2001 World League and has picked up a silver medal at the FIVB Youth World Championship in Saudi Arabia in 1999, a bronze medal at the Junior FIVB WCH in Poland in 2001, and two fourth places in Bahrain 1997 and Thailand 1999.
Having played for Brazilian club side Ulbra from 1999-2000 and for Olympiakos Piraeus in Greece from 2000 to now his international experience is immense and he is sure to be Venezuela's heart and soul again during the 2003 World League and for many more years to come.
A danger for all opposing teams but a joy to watch by all the fans. Ernardo "Harry" Gomez is one of the crowds' favorites.
