Twenty years after testing positive for HIV, Greg says his health is on an upswing from a new combination drug regimen. "When I first did your show, as soon as I had a sniffle, a sore throat, a scratchy throat it was like, 'Oh, my God, I'm dying,'" he says. "But now it's just like, you know what? I'm okay. I don't feel in peril."

Despite feeling better, Greg says he feels that some young people don't realize the severity of HIV and AIDS. "I wouldn't wish my drug regimen on anyone," he says. "Because some of the therapies are pretty severe."

Greg started coaching a diving camp at the end of 2010 and says he's excited to be back in the pool.
