Has anyone ever done a speed run of this game?

I'm thinking of doing speed runs of the original trilogy, and would likely start with this game (though I would have to decide on what category - and find my memory card, to make practicing easier). I'm not gonna delude myself into believing that I could get a WR, but I think it'd be fun to do these. Point is, has anyone ever done one and have tips?
The thing I never really wrapped my brain around until now was in order to be remembered, in order to leave something significant behind, you have to leave

I have done speedruns of Spyro in the past: check out speedrun.com if you haven't already.

Advice: Run through the game without researching tricks and see what time you get. Then go onto the leaderboard and pick a time you aim to beat [be reasonable to yourself for your first one]. Watch their Speedrun and see what tricks they do and equally what mistakes they make. Beat their time. Then move onto the run above and rinse and repeat.
Speed's the game!

Spyro moves too goddamn slow in this game to do a speed LEVEL, let alone the whole thing

There's a pretty active community of Spyro speedrunners. They've done some really impressive stuff (like this, for example). They've found out a lot about what can be done to completely break these games, so I agree with Maniac X: watch a ton of these runs (mostly the more recent ones, as new tricks are found as time goes on) and you'll learn a lot.
You gotta believe!

I keep meaning to post my run for Spyro 2! Try as I might, I can't seem to beat my PB of 1:20:44.21... All the runs above me abuse at least one proxy or another, and I just can't get proxies consistently :V
