So did Felix break the sound barrier on the space jump?

So did Felix break the sound barrier? They never mentioned whether or not he did it. That was seriously so awesome. I know he broke several records, but what a freaking bummer he didn't break the free fall record as well. He missed it by roughly 30 seconds (I think he was in free fall for 4:17 or so) and it was very much attainable.
I would be pissed if I did that and barely missed the free fall record. If I went to those lengths to do that jump I would want to have every single record available. You think they would have set an alarm on his watch to go off and let him know when he should deploy the chute after obtaining every record.
