Former Olympic rowing medalist Silken Laumann was in the red chair to talk about her new book Unsinkable and trials and tribulations she's faced in her life.

Laumann also fielded a question from former gymnastics star Nadia Comăneci about what her favourite sporting moment was.

"That's a tough question. What's my favourite moment?" said Laumann. "Mark Tewksbury winning that gold medal [in 100m backstroke in 1992]. And just the look on his face. And just the sheer moment, the sheer joy.

"I mean, I always loved the stories of overcoming. The people who've been injured and come back. But it's too hard to choose just one."
