translated from Spanish: Tokyo 2020-Gymnastics: Tomás González finished 42nd in the floor event

The outstanding Chilean gymnast Tomás González finally finished in 42nd place his participation in the floor event of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, far from qualifying for the final for the medals. The 35-year-old got a score of 13,600, with a penalty of 1.2, which left him far from the top eight places advancing to the final of artistic gymnastics in each apparatus. The best on floor was Israel’s Artem Dolgopyat, with 15,200 points. After his performance, González declared that “I’m happy to be here, it’s like a prize of all these months of pandemic, of all these months without competition. As it was a reserve for the Games that made it very difficult to maintain training, because until two weeks ago we didn’t know we were coming.” I still have a hard time assimilating it, I already assumed that I stayed in Chile, so it was amazing. I want to get to Chile and take a few days off and decide on my future, but I do not project myself in another Olympic cycle, of frenzy. But I don’t know if one or a couple more years… Now I was super satisfied and proud,” he added. González was only registered on the floor, so he says goodbye to the Olympic Games, a competition in which he had two fourth places in London 2012 and which also saw him shine in Rio 2016.
