How to request an Olympic Sport to the IOC?
I really want Cross Country Running to be a discipline in Athletics again. It's been almost 100 years...
If the discipline came back, how could somebody request the discipline be brought back? What's the process? Do I need to contact the International Olympic Committee?
Please don't tell me about the 2018 winter olympics sport bid, I want Cross country to be a discipline under Athletics in the Summer Olympics.

Its not going to happen all of the best XC runners are already in the steeplechase, 5000m, 10000m and marathon. It is not going to be in the summer Olympics and a letter to the IOC is not going to change that.

That is unrealistic.
IOC would NEVER approve running in a NATURAL environment.
