Additional information
General
NAMED ELEMENT
In September 2018 the International Gymnastics Federation [FIG] included the 'Gonzalez' in the Code of Points. The move, which he first performed at the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships in Anaheim, CA, United States of America, is a backward flip with three-and-a-half turns. He posted a video of the exercise from 2003 on social media. "Today a dream has come true, I present you with the 'Gonzalez'. From now on this exercise will be registered with my name in the scoring code of the International Gymnastics Federation." (Instagram profile, 28 Sep 2018; fig-docs.com, 28 Sep 2018; latercera.com, 28 Sep 2019)

OTHER ACTIVITIES
In April 2017 he was voted president of the Chilean Gymnastics Federation. "I am in a retirement stage [of his career]. I will consider it year by year. I think I still can give something to my country. If I travel as an athlete I will not do it as the federation president and vice versa. I am not going to mix both things." (siad.cl, 08 Apr 2019; tomasgonzalez.cl, 09 Aug 2017; t13.cl, 10 Apr 2017)

ACADEMY
In February 2016 he opened the Tomas Gonzalez Sports Centre in Santiago, Chile, which is dedicated to developing talented artistic gymnasts. (tomasgonzalez.cl, 17 Feb 2016; centrodeportivotomasgonzalez.cl, 09 Aug 2017)
