Chris showed great raw talent at both the long and triple jump and won eight AAA age group titles. Despite breaking both his wrists in a weight training accident in 2002, he returned in April of that year to break Lynn Davies 34 year old British Long Jump record with 8.27m in Tallahassee. He won the European Cup and became a consistent finalist at major championships, finishing sixth at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships in 2002, followed by a ninth place finish at the 2003 World Championships in Paris.

2004 was arguably his most consistent season, recording eight competitions over 8m (indoors and outdoors), including setting a national record at the World Indoor Championships in Budapest, winning the European Cup for a second time as well as finishing a very creditable fifth at the Olympic Games, jumping 8.23m in qualification, then 8.25m in the final.

Having missed most of the 2005 season through injury, Tomlinson was slightly under-par in 2006 but had a very good start to 2007, where he broke his own British record in June, improving his mark by two centimetres, but despite a good run of form, Tomlinson failed to make the world final in Osaka.

Likewise, the 2008 campaign started well, before slowly petering out. Tomlinson improved his British indoor record by one centimetre in Stuttgart, before winning a world indoor silver medal in Valencia but could not rediscover this sort of form for the outdoor campaign, and was a disappointing fifth at the Olympic Trials.

Having been selected, his Olympic ambitions were put on hold again, as he injured his calf at Crystal Palace, which forced him to withdraw mid-competition and having just recovered in time for Beijing, Tomlinson did not do himself justice, only managing 7.70m in qualification.

In 2009 he jumped more times over 8.00m than ever before and after an early season 8:23m in Italy he was unable to improve on that mark. He qualified for the World Championships Final with 8.06m and in the final repeated that to finish in a respectable 8th place. 2010 saw him clinch the bronze medal in Barcelona at the European Championships with a season's best of 8.23m and at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi after qualifying for the final he landed awkwardly and was stretchered off with a damaged ankle but returned for the final and understandably was way below-par and didn't record a distance to qualify for the final eight places. 2011 saw him extend the UK record to 8.35m in Paris. 2012 was a frustrating year for Tomlinson after injuries held back his season with some lowly marks before exploding into form at the London DIamond League with a 8.26m leap. A sixth place in the Olympic final was a solid performance but it was a 'what might have been' performance in his eyes.

In 2008, he wed his West End actress girlfriend and a former Miss Newcastle, Lucia Rovardi.
