Misha Ge was born in Moscow, Russian SFSR to skating coaches Larisa and Jun Ge. He is of Russian, Chinese, and Korean descent. From the age of about 10, he lived in Beijing, China, where his parents coached. Ge also resided in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan. He moved to the United States in mid-2009 and returned to Beijing in 2013. He speaks Russian, Mandarin, and English. Ge has taken choreography courses at the Beijing Dance Academy and the Hollywood Dance Academy.
As a competitor
Having first stepped onto the ice at age three and a half, Misha Ge began training seriously at ten after moving to China. From 2009, he trained in the United States. He started representing Uzbekistan in 2010.
Ge placed 16th at the 2013 World Championships in London, Ontario. His result earned Uzbekistan a men's entry at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Beijing became Ge's main training base in 2013. In autumn of that year, he received his first Grand Prix assignment, the 2013 Rostelecom Cup. In February 2014, Ge competed at the Winter Olympics in Sochi and finished 17th.
Ge placed 5th at the 2014 Cup of China and 4th at the 2014 Rostelecom Cup. Later during the season, he earned two top-ten placements at the ISU Championships. He placed 8th at the 2015 Four Continents in Seoul (7th in the short, 9th in the free), and 6th at the 2015 World Championships in Shanghai (8th in SP, 7th in FS).
Ge received two 2015–16 Grand Prix assignments but had to withdraw from one, the 2015 Trophée Éric Bompard, due to a visa issue. He finished 8th at the 2015 Cup of China. In October, he won gold at an ISU Challenger Series event, the 2015 CS Denkova-Staviski Cup. Throughout the season, he was hampered by a left ankle injury, which was caused by executing quad jumps.
