I would have slammed it because their timing was egregiously bad in it. Now too, come to think of it, I would still slam it. They sacrificed timing for speed across the ice.

Two of the best male tap dancers in figure skating that I’m aware of were Alex Benoit who is at the London West End and Daniel Eaton who was an Eisenhower Dance Center Advanced Tap Dance

Love Tap,
Next time I go thru the old movies I'll check. He had to quit Tapping when he had the Donor Cadaver Transplant in his Left Ankle back when he was 14. His cousin, Jo-Anne Borlase was also a very good dancer.
