She had earlier attempted a comeback in 1992, but the exertion of that endeavor had hospitalized her with pleurisy, forcing her to withdraw from the 1992 Olympic trials. Nonetheless, Griggs was able to successfully make a comeback in 1993 for the 50-meter backstroke competition at the Australian Swimming Championships, when she posted the fastest time in the world (that year). She declared her retirement from competitive swimming the day after that swim.
