Swimming peacefully to reach my goal,
Using no arms to reach the col.

Fruit of the effort I am,
Even though men go ham.

Many brothers and sisters,
Yet only one winner.

I have no ex and you may ask me why,
The answer, my friend, is that I'm a little shy.

Don't be fooled, I can still knock,
But I might stay on the rock.

How old am I must likely, and who am I ?

Answer:

the Y chromosome sperm cell

Swimming peacefully to reach my goal,
Using no arms to reach the col.

Well...it does not have arms

Fruit of the effort I am,
Even though men go ham.

You got to put "some effort" into it (if you know what I mean)

Many brothers and sisters,
Yet only one winner.

Only the first one gets the egg.

I have no ex and you may ask me why,
The answer, my friend, is that I'm a little shy.

The Y chromosome cell does not have an X one with it.

Don't be fooled, I can still knock,
But I might stay on the rock.

Knock as in "knocked-up".

    $\begingroup$ Also, the title has another hint. If one of them reaches the egg, the act was successful, so in a way they are "all winners". $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Apr 18 '16 at 14:59

A spermatozoid

Swimming peacefully to reach my goal, Using no arms to reach the col.

The goal is the egg cell. The col, in French, is the cervix, but that's a little strange here.

Result of making love.

Only one to reach the egg

Not sure about this. Maybe has not inseminated before (don't know how to say in English)

I guess...

spermathozoid (sry typos)
they have no arms, and have to swim up the river.
they are tons of thems, which all would be brothres/sisters, yet only 1 gets to the goal.
