Both the standing jump (straight vertical) and standing long jump have not been Olympic events since 1912, when they were discontinued.

Why is it illegel to go faster than 2 meters per second in the long jump?

I can only assume that you mean the "standing" long jump, as opposed to the regular long jump, where you're allowed to have a running approach. Two meters per second is about half a mile per hour. That's slow. Most people walk at a pace of about four miles per hour.
