Myhrer represented Sweden at the 2006 Winter Olympics and tied for fourth place in the slalom, only 0.03 s from third. At the 2010 Olympics he was tenth after the first run of the slalom at Whistler, then had the fastest time in the second and won the bronze medal. In 2018, Myhrer won the Olympic slalom competition after both main favourites had failed to finish. In addition to four Olympics, Myhrer has competed in nine World Championships.

Through November 2019, Myhrer has eight World Cup victories and 29 podiums, mainly in slalom. He won the 2012 season title in slalom and finished eleventh in the overall standings.
