L’Italia non si ferma più e con un’altra fantastica impresa si aggiudica il sesto oro, il quarto in soli tre giorni a Tokyo 2020. Stavolta è il quartetto del ciclismo su pista formato da Filippo Ganna, Francesco Lamon, Jonathan Milan e Simone Consonni ad arricchire il medagliere azzurro con il metallo più prezioso. L’impresa è di quelle leggendarie con la medaglia numero 30 di questa spedizione e un altro straordinario oro con record del mondo di 3’42″032, quasi due decimi meglio dei danesi, che non possono nulla soprattutto davanti a un Filippo Ganna spaziale nell’ultimo chilometro.

Il successo arriva dopo la giornata storica di ieri quando nella semifinale con la Nuova Zelanda gli azzurri avevano stabilito il precedente record del mondo con il tempo di 3’42”207. Grande protagonista il pistard verbano Ganna, che negli ultimi mille metri, prende la testa della sua squadra e trascina la locomotiva azzurra al successo, sconfiggendo di 90 millesimi gli All Blacks. Il quartetto italiano supera la Danimarca, arrivata in finale dopo una controversia senza precedenti. I giudici di gara hanno impiegato oltre un’ora per comunicare l’avversario dell’Italia nella finale per l’oro. A causa dello scontro tra Frederik Madsen e l’inglese Oliver Wood, che aveva reso necessaria l’interruzione della gara.

La gara

Al velodromo di Izu, prefettura di Shizuoka, gli Azzurri hanno fatto la storia. Una prestazione spaziale, con i quattro chilometri di gara chiusi in 3’42”032 (primato mondiale migliorato di tre decimi). Il quartetto tricolore, ben lanciato da Lamon, transitava in testa al primo chilometro con 2 decimi di vantaggio su Lasse Norman Hansen, Niklas Larsen, Frederik Madsen e Rasmus Pedersen. Un atto conclusivo equilibratissimo giro dopo giro. A metà gara il gap minimo degli italiani si riduceva ulteriormente ad un solo decimo. Poi la Danimarca cambiava nettamente passo, effettuava il sorpasso ed ai 3 km viaggiava addirittura con 8 decimi di margine sugli azzurri. Nell’ultimo chilometro prendeva però la testa Filippo Ganna e non la lasciava più. Il quattro volte campione del mondo individuale, nonché iridato in carica della cronometro su strada, innestava una progressione disarmante, recuperando praticamente da solo ben nove decimi di svantaggio ai danesi. Un’autentica locomotiva si lanciava all’inseguimento degli scandinavi. Poi il sorpasso proprio sul traguardo: 0.171 di vantaggio sulla Danimarca. Aveva inizio l’apoteosi azzurra.

Era da 61 anni (quando, alle Olimpiadi di Roma 1960, Marino Vigna, Luigi Arienti, Franco Testa e Mario Vallotto conquistarono l’oro olimpico) che l’Inno di Mameli non accompagnava un podio dell’inseguimento a squadre su pista. Dopo la gioia di Elia Viviani a Rio 2016, il ciclismo italiano fa ancora la storia ai Giochi Olimpici.

Una rimonta epica compiuta da quattro fenomeni: IMPRESSIONANTI GANNA, LAMON, CONSONNI E MILAN! È OROOOOOO!#CyclingTrack | #Tokyo2020 | #ItaliaTeam

【Q】10年前に買ったWi-Fiルーターは買い替えるべき?

■ 【A】最新のWi-Fiルーターに買い替えることで通信速度の大幅な向上が見込めます  Wi-Fiの主な通信規格には、古い順に「IEEE 802.11a」、「IEEE 802.11b」、「IEEE 802.11g」、「IEEE 802.11n(Wi-Fi 4)」、「IEEE 802.11ac(Wi-Fi 5)」、「IEEE 802.11ax(Wi-Fi 6)」があります。  ノートPCやスマートフォン、タブレット端末といったWi-Fiに接続するデバイスは、新しい規格だけでなく、古いWi-Fiの通信規格も基本的にサポートしています。そのため、10年前に購入したWi-Fiルーターに、最新のノートPCやスマートフォンを接続することは可能です。  ただ、Wi-FiルーターにノートPCなどのデバイスを接続して通信する場合、基本的に両者が共通して対応しているWi-Fiの通信規格で最新のものが使われます。このため、例えばノートPCが最新のIEEE 802.11axに対応していても、Wi-Fiルーターが対応しているのはIEEE 802.11nだった場合、Wi-Fiでの通信に使われる規格はIEEE 802.11nであり、通信速度は最大でも600Mbpsにとどまります。  そこで検討したいのがWi-Fiルーターの買い替えで、IEEE 802.11axに対応したWi-Fiルーターにすれば通信速度は大幅に向上します。  このように通信速度が向上すれば、例えばウェブサイトにアクセスした際のレスポンスが高速化して快適に閲覧できるうえに、フルHDや4Kといった高解像度の動画でも速度不足でコマ落ちすることなく、スムーズに再生することが可能になるでしょう。 ■ 古いWi-Fiルーターは通信内容が盗み見られる!?  セキュリティ面が強化されていることも、最新のWi-Fiルーターに買い替えるメリットになります。  Wi-Fiは電波で通信を行うため、その電波が傍受されると通信内容が盗み見られてしまいます。そのため、Wi-Fiでは通信内容の暗号化が欠かせません。  この通信内容の暗号化のための規格として、当初広まったのは「WEP」(Wired Equivalent Privacy)でしたが、暗号化された内容を簡単に解読できることが発覚したため、「WPA」(Wi-Fi Protected Access)と呼ばれる規格が登場しました。  このWPAも徐々に強化されていて、最初のWPAの後、セキュリティ強度を高めた「WPA2」が登場、そして現在ではさらに安全性が高い「WPA3」が広まり始めています。 ...
