I'd bring in all of the above, the more the merrier! When you say other sports, if you mean a new sport being brought in altogether then I'd  like to see Darts and Squash in there, their tournament style formats lend themselvles to the Olympics. If you mean a new discipline in an existing sport that hasn't already been mentioned then I think they should add team events to the golf programme, whether it be Men's, women's and/or mixed.

That reminds me, I made a topic a while back where you can present your own programme.

I'm currently working on the template for a 2022 version. Will be interesting to see how things have changed.
