I think that any added sports should be ones with lower facilities & equipment requirements (kinda the opposite of golf). Also it should be a sport that a majority of the 200+ Olympic countries have a chance of competing in.

Cross country running.

Fill in the women's & men's track distance running. For example women do (I think) 1500-3000-marathon. Why not 5k & 10k? Or even add these distances to road versions as well.

Add 1500m for women & 800m for men to swimming.

Add wrestling back in (men & women).

Add longer triathlons.

Bring back baseball & softball. One of the reasons for dropping this was "not enough countries participate" which can be translated to "we are sick of the US & Japan winning all the time". If the IOC could make a deal with MLB then this could change (for example Venezuela has some great players).
