(Newser) – A 22-year-old woman collapsed and died during the Cleveland Marathon Sunday morning, cleveland.com reports. Taylor Ceepo was dead on arrival at a nearby hospital, but no further details were yet available on symptoms or cause of death. She was about a quarter-mile from the finish line when she collapsed, Fox News reports. According to a statement from Walsh University, from which Ceepo had just graduated, "Her mother, dear friends and her boyfriend (also a Walsh student) were with her. Our love and deepest sympathies go to her family and loved ones." Ceepo had played on the school's soccer team; she majored in biology with minors in psychology and chemistry.
