Nylander finished fourth in four global championships (World Athletics Championships 1983 and 1987 - Olympic Games 1984 and 1996). He also finished fifth in the 1995 World Athletics Championship.
Nylander attended Southern Methodist University ("SMU") in Dallas, Texas, USA on an athletic scholarship, where he was a member of the track and field team.
During the European Championships in Gothenburg 2006, Nylander attended a party on a night club in central Gothenburg. He, former high jumper Patrik Sjöberg and sprinter Patrik Lövgren, was later stopped by the police and brought to the police station where they left urine samples, under suspicion of drug use. In interviews, Nylander at first claimed that he had not used narcotics. A couple of days later, Nylander confessed to having used cocaine during the party.
