Ernardo ("Harry") Andrés Gómez Cañas (born July 30, 1982 in Bolívar) is a volleyball player from Venezuela, who won the gold medal with the Venezuela men's national team at the 2003 Pan American Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

He is 195 cm and 100 kg weight. He plays for PAOK VC in Greece since 2014 season start and wears the number 11. He has played over 300 times for his national team. He also played for Fenerbahçe Istanbul in Turkey, Ulbra in Brazil, Olympiakos Piraeus and Panathinaikos VC in Greece and Toyoda Gosei Trefuerza in Japan.

At only 20 years of age Harry, as he is affectionately known‚ was Venezuela's main attacking weapon. A powerful attack near the net as well as from the back zone and an excellent service were his strongest weapons and since making his international debut at the age of 13 he proved to be Venezuela's ace card.

Standing at only 195 cm 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.

He won with his team the gold medal at the 2005 Bolivarian Games.[1]

He was part of the Venezuela men's national volleyball team at the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship in Poland.[2] He played for Toyoda Gosei Trefuerza.
