Is it cooperation or that going with the crowd is just easier to move farther faster?

At this level isn't that the same thing?

Agreed. Without the presence of an egg in this experiment, it's really tough to make any conclusions outside of sperm motility. Apparently, the egg chooses the sperm in natural environments. Recent studies are suggesting that even though the fastest and most capable sperms reach the ovum first, it is the egg that has the final say on which sperm fertilizes it.
