Russian adventurer Fedor Konyukhov has broken the record for the fastest round-the-world flight in a hot air balloon, his crew said Saturday, surviving a gruelling endurance test of storms and freezing temperatures. Flight coordinator John Wallington said Konyukhov, who took off from Western Australia on July 12, had successfully flown the route by Saturday afternoon. "The record is broken -- no question," Wallington told AFP, adding that Konyukhov had flown his helium and hot-air balloon almost exactly over his starting point.
