Dr. Andrea Gotzmann, Chair of the Executive Board of the National Anti Doping Agency of Germany (NADA Germany), attended this year's 21st Symposium on Anti-Doping Science of the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in Colorado Springs. With a presentation on Dried Blood Spot and Remote Testing, which she gave together with Dominic Müser (Sportradar) under the title "Virtual Testing: A New and Effective Detection and Deterrence Strategy", the findings from various NADA Germany projects were presented. In addition, Gotzmann contributed to the science symposium as a participant in a panel discussion. Around 100 international experts from research, international sports federations and national anti-doping organisations attended the symposium entitled "The Elite Athlete: Differentiating Extraordinarily Normal from Abnormally Extraordinary".

Following the symposium, Gotzmann visited the USADA office in Colorado Springs. The exchange with Travis Tygart, CEO of USADA, focused primarily on the latest findings of the symposium as well as topics relating to international cooperation and the further development of anti-doping work.
