Usually the first level in a sonic game is very optimised compared to the others, so I was surprised how much time I could save here over the previous best. Spending less time in the air is critical here, there are 2 tippy jumps that are super important, and the last jump before the loop is deceptively difficult, as getting a perfect jump to kill the fish on the way down without bouncing off it is rough. Got a 21, happy.
