When has a high-jumper completed their jump ?

    A high jumper clears the bar and ends up in the landing foam.

    At what point is the jump deemed to have been completed ? Is it when the athlete leaves the landing area ?

    What I am thinking of is the situation where the jumper has cleared the bar but is still in the landing area when the bar falls off.

    Would it be the same for the pole vault ?
