Best Answer

A legal jump is one that counts, i.e. the jump is measured and goes towards the athlete's result.

An "illegal" jump would be one where a foul is committed. This includes, taking off in front of the take-off board, landing outside the pit, walking out of the front of the pit or taking longer than the allotted time.
