Lloyd Scott

Lloyd Scott, MBE (born 13 October 1961) is an English former professional football goalkeeper and charity fundraiser, best known in the UK for his charity marathons. He is notable for competing in the 2002 London Marathon in a deep-sea diving costume. In 2003 Scott also completed the world's first underwater marathon in Loch Ness and in 2004 cycled a Penny Farthing across Australia. In 2020, between COVID-19 lockdowns, he completed the 3 Peaks Challenge wearing his deep-sea diving suit.

Scott holds a number of Guinness World Records and can be found as one of the characters on the cover of the 2024 edition of the Guinness World Records book.

Scott has undertaken his challenges with a background of overcoming chronic myeloid leukaemia (1989) and has been battling a rare form of cancer, called synovial sarcoma, for the past three years.

On 2 July 2012 the BBC reported that Scott, wearing a 130 lb (59 kg) diving suit, was the first person to complete the 2012 Olympic Marathon Course in a time of six days. Provided by Wikipedia
