"Celebrity adventurer" first solo balloonist to circle the world: That's great...but is it a sport?

If it was a race round the world, then it would be sport. Last I heard, he still can't land because of bad weather. At this rate, he'll be doing another circumnavigation first..

It's a durned nifty activity, but I have a tough time thinking of solo ballooning -- without competition -- as a sport.
