Author's comments and explanations:
A pacifistic gymnast kicks Jaffar's turban and becomes the Prince of Persia. He does it 42 seconds (2512 frames) faster than before.

Most of the time was saved by avoiding more enemies. Thanks to SprintGod for his movie, which helped a lot in the process. Under 19 minutes might be possible, but this is the most boring game I've ever TASed, so I'll leave it be for now. I don't have anything else to say at the moment, so please ask for more explanations, if you want to. Have fun and enjoy the 7th oldest publication getting obsoleted!
