Does one need extraordinary extra-curriculars to be in an IIM?

Chirag Shukla, MBA Aspirant asked 10 months ago

On LinkedIn, I have seen that most of the profiles of students at IIMs BLACKI consists of those who have played national level sports, or have won best delegates at international MUNs, have been the President of a club/society, and are generally over-achievers across all fields. 
Does a student need to be an over-achiever to be in a top IIM? Can a student with average ECAs make it to IIM ABC?
