Nicknamed the Blackpool Tower due to his stats at 6ft 10" and 25 stone (350lb).


In 1999, Myerscough's record was tarnished when he tested positive for the second time, for "a cocktail of banned substances" and was subsequently banned from competing for two years, and banned for life from the Olympics. The Olympic ban was subsequently overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport and he represented Team GB at the 2012 Olympics in London. Myerscough placed 29th in the qualifying rounds and did not progress further.

He has always denied knowingly taking drugs and believed he was a victim of sabotage. Myerscough is married to the American athlete Melissa Price, who was also banned at one time as a result of drug use in connection with the BALCO scandal.
